Welcome to New York's Upper East Side: where privilege, partying and scandal rules.
Anna K is the golden girl of New York high society. She's beautiful, she's kind, she's unbelievably rich, and she has the perfect boyfriend.
Until she meets Alexi Vronsky. He's a notorious playboy, totally gorgeous, and he only has eyes for Anna.
Despite everyone who matters in New York talking about her, Anna still just can't resist Vronsky. Even if it means her carefully crafted life could come crashing down.
Perfect for fans of Crazy Rich Asians and Gossip Girl this is an addictive and subversive reimagining of Leo Tolstoy's timeless love story Anna Karenina.
"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, New York Times bestselling author of American Royals
