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; and she has always made her Korean-American father proud (even if he can be a little controlling). Anna always seems to be able to sail gracefully . . . until the night she meets Alexia “Count” Vronsky, a notorious playboy. As Alexia and Anna are pulled irresistibly together, she has to decide how much of her life she is willing to let go to be with him. And when a shocking revelation threatens to shatter their relationship, she is forced to question if she has ever known herself at all.

Customer Reviews

“A slow-burn epic tale of love in modern-day Manhattan high society.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Lee’s version of Anna Karenina, tweaked and updated for today’s teens, makes for addictive reading.”

— BookPage (starred)

“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 cratches the same itch binge-watching comfort TV does and stands as a good reminder that an ‘important’ read can be just a fun one.”
