Dreaming Anastasia, by Joy Preble
What really happened to Anastasia Romanov, daughter of the last Tsar of Russia?
Anastasia Romanov is terrified when the gunfire starts, and her family starts to fall around her. Surely the bullets will come for her next. But they don't. Instead, two gnarled old hands reach for her. When she wakes up, she discovers that she is in the ancient hut of the witch, Baba Yaga, and that some things are worse than being dead.
In modern-day Chicago, Anne doesn't know much about Russian history. She is more concerned with getting into a good college. But then the dreams start. She is somewhere else. She is someone else. And she is sharing a room with a very old woman. Not until a handsome stranger explains her dreams does she realize that she is the only one who can save Anastasia.
