From the bestselling author of Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow comes the first in a YA trilogy. Gabrielle Zevin's All These Things I've Done is a Godfather-inspired thriller set in a futuristic New York, where the daughter of a mafia don falls in love with the son of the District Attorney.

In 2083, chocolate and coffee are illegal, paper is hard to find, 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, trying to avoid falling in love with the 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 is in the spotlight and must choose between love and loyalty, knowing that whatever she decides will have shattering consequences: heartbreak or a gangland war that will tear the city apart . . .
