Anna K: A Love Story
A national indie bestseller! Meet Anna K: every happy teenage girl is the same, while every unhappy teenage girl is miserable in her own special way...
At seventeen, Anna K is at the top of Manhattan and Greenwich society (even if she prefers the company of her horses and dogs); she has the perfect (if perfectly boring) boyfriend, Alexander W.; and she has always made her Korean-American father proud (even if he can be a little controlling). Meanwhile, Anna's brother, Steven, and his girlfriend, Lolly, are trying to weather an sexting scandal; Lolly's little sister, Kimmie, is struggling to recalibrate to normal life after an injury derails her ice dancing career; and Steven's best friend, Dustin, is madly (and one-sidedly) in love with Kimmie.

A SkimmReads Pick
"A timeless tale of how much we're willing to sacrifice for love." --Teen Vogue
"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 be a fun one." --Vanity Fair (Best Book of the Year So Far)
"This innovative retelling illustrates the push and pull of first love." --Time
"Lee's version of Anna Karenina, tweaked and updated for today's teens, makes for addictive reading." --BookPage, starred review "You'll be hard-pressed to find a YA that captures the Gossip Girl vibe as well as this debut, and you know B would approve of the fact that it takes its inspiration from classic literature!" --BuzzFeed
"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
