My husband just texted me and sent a couple of pics of something I received in the mail today! I was so excited to see the cool box but even more excited to see who the author of the new book is...Gabrielle Zevan!
I have really enjoyed the other books I've read that she has written...Elsewhere and Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac. Here are the pics of the ARC and other goodies, plus the Goodreads summary of the book and publication date!
Oh and its Dystopian so yippee!
All These Things I've Done
by Gabrielle Zevin
September 27th 2011
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
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 probably should have waited for Waiting on Wednesday but I just couldn't wait! :)
