Publisher's Summary

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 16-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.

Futuristic Mafia Princess

Not at all what I thought I was getting into, but this book is very good. Although I'm sure it was meant for a younger audience than I, it really is a good story that most people will enjoy. While it is very different from the "Hunger Games," if you liked the "Hunger Games" you'll like this too. I look forward to the next in the series.

Ridiculous Premise... but enjoyed it nonetheless

I actually purchased this book because I enjoy Ilyana Kadushin's narrations, and she didn't disappoint. She has a voice that is very easy to listen to and she brings you into the story flawlessly. I'd suggest purchasing anything she narrates.

Despite the fact that chocolate is a banned substance but beer is not...the characters are well rounded, the story is intriguing, it left me wanting more and I was happy to discover that it's a series. It's a very creative look at future of our world and it takes familiar things and twists them in a surprising way.
