ALL THESE THINGS I'VE DONE
Genre: Young Adult, Futuristic
Addictive. Zevin has penned a winner that’s funny and sad, suspenseful and fascinating. I expected something dark and heavy and got much more. Anya is real, her voice is strong and watching her evolve is a pleasure. This is an incredibly good read.
In the future, New York City is impoverished, coffee and chocolate are illegal, water is rationed, and crime runs rampant. Anya Balanchine is the daughter of one of the city’s most notorious crime bosses. Orphaned at 9, she has been caretaker for her siblings while steering clear of the shadier side of her extended family. When the adorable new kid turns out to be the son of the city’s biggest law enforcer — and he’s interested in Anya — she knows it’s trouble. When everything tumbles down it will take a huge amount of strength to keep her and her family safe … if that’s even possible. (FARRAR, STRAUS & GIROUX, Sep., 368 pp., $16.99, ISBN: 9780374302108, HC, 12 & Up)
