Book blurb 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 accidentally 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.
Where chocolate is banned is kind of weird right, but that’s the kind of world where the characters by Zevin in All These Things I’ve Done are based. Anya’s life is complicated with her background making her condition worst. I find her relationship with Gabe Arsley the funny part of this story, and the illegal chocolate situation is kind of unrealistic because it’s going to take a lot for chocolates to ever be banned, but it’s just fiction. I found this book interesting and engaging to the reader, so I am rating 4/5 stars.
