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.

Read from the Book

All These Things I''ve Done I . i defend my own honor T HE NIGHT BEFORE JUNIOR YEAR--I was sixteen, barely --Gable Arsley said he wanted to sleep with me. Not in the distant or semidistant future either. Right then. Admittedly, my taste in boys wasn''t so great. I was attracted to the sort who weren''t in the habit of asking permission to do anything. Boys like my father, I guess. We''d just gotten back from the coffee speakeasy that used to be off University Place, in the basement of a church. This was back when caffeine, along with about a million other things, was against the law. So much was illegal (paper without a permit, phones with cameras, chocolate, etc.) and the laws changed so quickly, you could be committing a crime and not even know it. Not that it mattered. The boys in blue were totally overwhelmed. The city was bankrupt, and I''d say maybe 75 percent of the force had been fired. The police that were left didn''t have time to worry about teens getting high on coffee. I should have known something was up when Gable offered to escort me back to the apartment. At night at least, it was a pretty dangerous trek from the speakeasy to where I lived on East Ninetieth, and Gable usually left me to fend for myself. He lived downtown, and I guess he figured that I hadn''t been killed making the trip yet. We went into my apartment, which had been in the family practically forever--since 1995, the year my grandma Galina was born. Galina, who we called Nana and who I loved l

Editorial Reviews

“The story is incredibly compelling–an intriguing future with a classic tale of star-crossed lovers. Readers will be racing to find out the sequel’s release date as soon as they finish the last page.” -- School Library Journal   “…romance fans will likely adore the star-crossed passionate romance, the heroic gestures, and the responsibility-be-damned happy ending that brings the protagonists back together.” -- BCCB   “The talented Zevin writes Anya and Win’s high-wire romance as jolting for both the participants and readers.” -- Booklist , starred review   “…the achingly realistic romance between this latter-day Romeo and Juliet, told in Anya’s earnest voice, will attract readers as surely as chocolate attracts…mobsters.” -- Horn Book Magazine “ In Gabrielle Zevin''s All These Things I''ve Done , we fast-forward to 2083. Chocolate and coffee are contraband (can you imagine?!), paper and water are scarce, and New York is crawling with crime and poverty. But this is normal for sixteen-year-old Anya Balachine, daughter of the city''s late crime boss. Until, that is, the chocolate her family manufactures accidentally poisons her ex and all fingers are pointed at her.” – TeenVogue.com “The love story’s to die for, and the tangled web of relationships will keep readers intrigued to the last page.” – Kirkus Reviews “Offering th
