Waiting on Wednesday: All These Things I've Done - Gabrielle Zevin


Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine and is a post detailing an upcoming book you can't wait to read.

My choice for this week is All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin.


Publication date: September 6th 2011

Summary (from Goodreads): 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.

  2. All These Things I've Done is a great addition to the dystopian genre.
    I liked the way that Zevin wrote the book to the reader , and not just as a random story. You feel like Anya is telling you the story personally.
