A SkimmReads Pick

"A timeless tale of how much we're willing to sacrifice for love." --Teen Vogue

"A modern take on Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, Anna K is a Gossip Girl meets Big Little Lies tale of wealth, privilege, love, and loss with lots of designer labels." --GoodMorningAmerica.com

"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 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
