"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
"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." -Vanity Fair
"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
"A slow-burn epic tale of love in modern-day Manhattan high society." -Kirkus Reviews
