From Gabrielle Zevin—the author of the critically acclaimed Elsewhere—comes the first book in the Birthright series, All These Things I've Done, a masterful novel about an impossible romance, a mafia family, and the ties that forever bind us.

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.

i cant stand this book. there were so many small things that were extremely annoying. for example, she picked a lock with a single nail. thats not even close to how it works. do a little research, Gabrielle. also, if i heard "i.e." one more time i was going to kill myself. pretty much the whole book was her bitching about stuff and then talking about how she doesn't bitch about stuff. she is the classic teen, no matter how much she says otherwise. she is depressed, self pitying, or angry all the time, but she never tells anybody, so she comes off as a raging bitch, but nobody knows why. i hate those people. i'm an asshole but at least people know my reasons.
