this is another teen top ten nominee and it was better than I expected. I expected a dystopian novel, after all ,chocolate and caffeine are illegal. But really we just have a slowly crumbling world , with people just trying to live their lives. Anya , a 16-year-old girl has a few more problems than the average girl. her parents are dead,. Her grandmother is her guardian, but she is old ( born in 1995) and in poor health. Her brother was hurt when her mother was killed. So she is really in charge of the family. And did I mention that her father was a crime boss? It gets much more complicated. I’m giving the book gets extra house points for bringing up Harry Potter. This is well worth reading.
