BECAUSE IT IS MY BLOOD
Genre: Young Adult, Futuristic
Definitely a page-turner! Zevin’s futuristic New York City is terrifying to imagine and her characters are sympathetic. Anya’s inner struggle is grueling, and the plot is fast-paced. This sequel will leave readers hungry for more.
Anya is on probation as the campaign for New York’s new D.A. continues to come between her and Win. Natty is back from genius camp, and although she is angry with Annie for lying, she is happy to be reunited. Imogen and Mr. Kipling remain as loyal as ever to the Balanchine children. Unfortunately, the remainder of Anya’s family continues to drag her into their shady mafiya world. When disaster strikes all three Balanchines at once Anya knows it’s no coincidence — she must face her destiny. (FSG, Sep., 368 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780374380748, HC, 12 & Up)
