Waiting on Wednesday - 39

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking The Spine for bloggers and readers to get excited about upcoming books.

All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin

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. (from Goodreads)

As a dystopian, this one makes the list easily, but the concept sounds really interesting. I haven't read much about the upper-class in a future world so this should be good! Look for All These Things I've Done in stores on September 27, 2011.
