Seventeen-year-old Anna is on track to lead her most perfect life. Living lavishly near her private school in Greenwich, Anna enjoys the security of her Ivy League boyfriend and the comfort of her beloved dogs and horses. However, when her older brother begs her to return home to New York City and help him sort out a sexting scandal, Anna meets a boy who threatens to throw her entire life off course. A notorious playboy, Alexia “Count” Vronsky is everything Anna isn’t: impulsive, wild, and ready to risk it all to be with her. As the two become entangled in an irresistible affair, Anna is forced to confront whether the life she always thought she would lead is the one she truly wants. A fresh, diverse take on a renowned classic, Anna K offers up an electrifying and heart-wrenching tale that holds true to the timeless themes of Tolstoy’s work—with a bit more sex, drugs, and selfies along the way.
How the mighty have fallen. Anna K, once the golden girl of Greenwich, CT, and New York City, has been brought low by a scandalous sex tape and the tragic death of her first love, Alexia Vronsky. At the beginning of the summer, her father takes her to the other side of the world, to connect with his family in South Korea and hide her away. Is Anna in exile? Or could this be her chance to figure out who she really is?
