Jenny Lee is a television writer and producer who has worked on BET's Boomerang, IFC's Brockmire, Freeform's Young & Hungry, and the Disney Channel's number-one-rated kids' show, Shake It Up. Jenny has previously published humor essay collections and middle-grade novels, and Anna K was her debut YA. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and 135-pound Newfoundland, Gemma (and yes, it's a toss-up on who's walking who every day).

"This innovative retelling illustrates the push and pull of first love." --Time

"This is a soapy YA book that reads, well, like a Russian novel. Jenny Lee remixes and updates Anna Karenina, this time with a Korean American teenage socialite anchoring the story. Tolstoy fans and novices alike will find Anna K to be a satisfying read." --NPR

"Something no one tells you about postcollege reading is the fact that you have to relearn how to read for fun--Anna K is the ideal book for the job. The novel scratches the same itch binge-watching comfort TV does and stands as a good reminder that an 'important' read can just be a fun one." --Vanity Fair

"Addictive reading." --BookPage (starred review)

"A fresh and wickedly smart take on a classic story. Anna is even more scandalously fun now, in the age of stilettos and social media, than she was in 19th century Russia. I couldn't put this one down!" --Katharine McGee, author of American Royals
