Jessica Knoll delivered the hit of the year back in 2015 with "Luckiest Girl Alive," a nail-biter about a Manhattan striver who is living a lie, and looking to reinvent herself after a horrifying event during her youth. The book has been optioned by none other than Reese Witherspoon.
“I was always ambitious,” she told Megyn Kelly TODAY. “What happened to me compounded that ambition that was already there.”
1. Favorite book on her nightstand
"I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer," by Michelle McNamara. "It's so good," said Knoll. "And now it's even better because they caught the Golden State Killer."
