Fantastic dark futuristic dystopian YA. Mafiya heiress Anya just wantes to go on living with her grandmother and older brother, who suffered brain damage as a child, but a Romeo and Juliet style teenage romance propells a sequence of events reminiscent of the Godfather- she has to step into shoes she never wanted to fill. Clever twists on the dystopian future included museums functioning as nightclubs (Little Egypt), prohibitions on chocolate and coffee, and a lot of government censorship. Really well done.
This is a log of what books I've been reading and movies I've been watching. Comments are welcome!
One explanation seems necessary - the phrase "Life-Changing Fiction" is not in any way an endorsement of those books- in fact, I think those books are Awful, and want that to be clear. "Life-Changing Fiction", as a phrase, has been trademarked, absurdly, by the "Christian fiction" writer Karen Kingsbury, and that is Just Not Right. Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
