I enjoyed this book mostly for the very interesting setting of NYC in 2083 - a place/time in which things like chocolate and coffee are illegal, and things like water and showers are paid for and limited in use. The characters live in an NYC full of crime and with a 12 o'clock curfew. Sixteen year old Anya Balanchine is the daughter of a notorious (and dead) crime boss and no matter how hard she tries, she can't seem to escape the life she was born into.

The only criticism I have about this book is that I think I imagined more was going on in the background then what was really happening (consequences of an adult reading a teen novel?). However, I look forward to reading the next installment of the series which may respond some of my unanswered questions!
