a real page turner I couldn t put down I think this is a polarizing read that won t be for everyone, but those that love it will love it hard An Anna Karenina retelling with a Gossip Girl vibe Glitz, glamour, drama, betrayal, opulence, infidelity, sex, drugs, and romance Jenny Lee has done a stellar job of taking this Russian classic and giving it a modern and diverse twist Admittedly I ve never

stellar job of taking this Russian classic and giving it a modern and diverse twist Admittedly I ve never read the original, but I did take a look at the Spark Notes and Miss Lee really did a remarkable job in the retelling I was completely sucked into this riveting tale of decadence and betrayal As entertaining as the story was there was also some depth and emotion to it And if you read the original classic you know all does not end happily ever after in fact I shed some tears The perspective of the story bounces around between multiple characters, really giving the reader the full story All the characters were so well developed, I particularly loved Anna and her brother Stephen The sibling relationship was great and Stephen had the most noticeable character development throughout the story This book is considered young adult, but I think it will appealto a older young adult audience as well as us old people Keep in mind if you are a parent wondering about this book for your team, that there is a lot and I mean a lot of sex and drugs and drinking in this book I think it was all handled very well and was not glamorized Such a fun engaging story and I am super excited that there is a sequel Cannot wait to see what is next in store for these fabulous characters.This book in emojis Big thank you to Flatiron Books for my gifted copy of this book All opinions are my own 2 StarsBeing that this is a modern retelling of Anna Karenina, I feel like I should start with this disclaimer I ve never read Anna Karenina It s been sitting unread on my shelves for years and my lazy ass just hasn t yet gotten around to reading it And after reading this, I have to tell youif anything, I feel even less compelled to read it I was not a huge fan of this book Jenny Lee s writing was amazing Truly awesome And very easily digestible But the characters Ughhhhh Were they 2 StarsBeing that this is a modern retelling of Anna Karenina, I feel like I should start with this

written Absolutely Were they realistic Probably Did I like spending time with them Hard nope I actually had to force myself to keep picking this up In fact, I almost DNF d it a couple times but as I ve said in previous reviews, I have a harder time DNF ing physical hardcovers than paperback or ebooks, for whatever reason So I persevered Luckily, things picked up for me around page 265 and I actually warmed up to some of the charactersIn fact, the ones I found the most irritating at the beginning became the only ones I liked in the end which, 1 I think was Lee s intent, and 2 Is the only reason I gave this two stars instead of one Regardless, I m happy I read and completed this if only to say that I did As I said, I did enjoy Lee s writing I could see myself picking up something else by her in the future and maybe having better luck No one me because I didn t know the plot of Anna Karenina, which is what this YA retelling is based on, but wow, am I fucking emo It s been months

as they try to navigate the ever changing world of being a rich teen in NYC This book explores both the carefree life of being a teen while also showcasing the darker parts of young adulthood like addiction, depression, parents divorcing, carrying the heavyweight of parental expectations and so muchSo, while it is an entertaining read that felt like a YA Crazy Rich Asians in terms of showcasing the opulence of the 1%, there areserious matters at the heart of the book that will grip you and make you a bit emotional, making it a very well rounded YA contemporary that isn t just all fluff I do have to admit that this book is very much a timely read because it uses a lot of slang and pop culture references that can easily date itself, and, at some points, the slang that the characters used felt awkward and out of place But, I do have to commend how this book flowed so effortlessly because it s told in 3rd person, so it seamlessly jumps back and forth between this motley crew to see their current situations and how their lives intertwine, over time While I did lose interest in two characters as the book progressed Kimmie Dustin , I do have to admit that this book gripped me from the beginning and took me on a journey with an ending I didn t see coming, even if it stared me in the face All in all, I had a lot of fun with this book, the characters in them and how easily they claimed to love another teen without knowing that much about them, which is so very high school and gave me a bit of nostalgia towards the naivety that comes along with being a teen It was hilarious, engrossing, entertaining, and gave me hope in YA contemporaries, again, after I thought I was growing out of them Turns out I just needed to find the right one to walk into my life.AT A GLANCE Crazy Rich Asians meets Anna Karenina Korean White MC Forbidden love A group of privileged teens in NYC navigating the confusing, whirlwind world of being a teen while grappling with addiction, parties, cheating, complicated relationships, parental expectations, and so much
