Waiting on Wednesday (1): Because It Is My Blood by Gabrielle Zevin

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!

This week, I'm waiting on:


Because It Is My Blood (Birthright, #2) - Gabrielle Zevin
Expected U.S. Publication Date: September 18, 2012


*THIS IS THE SEQUEL TO ALL THESE THINGS I'VE DONE, SO READ SYNOPSIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!*

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.

I LOVED All These Things I've Done and I cannot wait to continue with Anya's story! Gabrielle Zevin has created a world filled with strong and fierce characters that will stop at nothing to get what they want. The writing style is so marvelous and this is one of my "must have" books. If you haven't read All These Things I've Done, I highly recommend you do so! 

What are you waiting on this week? Leave your links to your WoW post so I can check it out!
