Because It Is My Blood

Author:  Gabrielle Zevin
Publisher: Straus and Giroux
Pages:  368
Genre: Young Adult / Dystopia
Source: BEA
Goodreads:   Since her release from Liberty Children’s Facility, Anya Balanchine is determined to follow the straight and narrow. Unfortunately, her criminal record is making it hard for her to do that. No high school wants her with a gun possession charge on her rap sheet. Plus, all the people in her life have moved on: Natty has skipped two grades at Holy Trinity, Scarlet and Gable seem closer than ever, and even Win is in a new relationship.But when old friends return demanding that certain debts be paid, Anya is thrown right back into the criminal world that she had been determined to escape. It’s a journey that will take her across the ocean and straight into the heart of the birthplace of chocolate where her resolve–and her heart–will be tested as never before.

Ope’s Opinion:   I was given this book at BEA.  I am not a dystopia reader, but thought I would try it.  Then I realized it was the second book in a series.  So I decided not to read it, but I thought the author deserved the exposure of her book.  

                                          If you would like to read this, I suggest you get All These Things I’ve Done first.  It is the first of  the series.

Rating:  I have given no rating here because I have not read this book.
