What I'm Reading on Wednesday....

All These Things I've Done (Birthright, #1)

From "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.
Engrossing and suspenseful, All These Things I've Done is an utterly unique, unputdownable read that blends both the familiar and the fantastic."

I am on page 90 of this book, and loving it so far.  Many people have read Elsewhere, by Gabrielle Zevin for school.  I really wanted to read this book, because the sequel is now at the library - and I need read my books in order!  Here is book number 2 in the series:

Because It Is My Blood (Birthright, #2)
