In a market crowded with teen dystopias, this book is a standout. First of all there are two truly terrifying laws in this dystopian society: chocolate and coffee are banned! I'm not sure I could live without those two substances. Fortunately, main character Anya belongs to a chocolate mafia family, so she had access to these and other contraband items. Though she is savvy and street-smart, Anya is unexpectedly sweet, for a mobster's daughter. She takes care of her siblings, studies hard in school, and is even a devout Catholic. This book had a lot of interesting twists and turns, and I look forward to reading the sequel.
