Blurb: In 2083, chocolate and coffee are illegal, paper is hard to find, water is carefully rationed, and New York City is rife with crime and poverty. And yet, for Anya Balanchine, the sixteen-year-old daughter of the city's most notorious (and dead) crime boss, life is fairly routine. It consists of going to school, taking care of her siblings and her dying grandmother, trying to avoid falling in love with the new assistant D.A.'s son, and avoiding her loser ex-boyfriend. That is until her ex is accidently poisoned by the chocolate her family manufactures and the police think she's to blame. Suddenly, Anya finds herself thrust unwillingly into the spotlight--at school, in the news, and most importantly, within her mafia family.
I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT I PUT THIS BOOK ON HOLD FOR SOOO LONG!Curse you review copies and schoolwork!:@This book deserves to be worshipped!I mean,a YA novel involving a girl of a mafia family?Now that's total awesomeness!Helloooo authors!Those who are too busy writing vampire novels!You do realize that it's time for a change,right?Instead of looking upon Stephanie Meyer as your role model,look upon Gabrielle Zevin instead!Miss Zevin,may I ask how you were able to come up with such a fascinating plot?I'm speechless!
Though I would like to see a bit more action in the second book.It's about a mafia godfather's daughter,for god's sake!It's supposed to be more like this:
All badass and everything!XD
But anyways,awesome book!!!Those who have kept this waiting are either really unfortunate or just plain stupid.This book is definitely worth your time!
(Oh,and by the way,even though my format says ebook,I have the paperback version of this cover)
