"Every time I think I’m out, they pull me back in.”- Michael Corleone, The Godfather

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."

My Thoughts:
This follows Anya and the Balanchine family following the events in All These Things I've Done. Anya grows more mature in this installment. She is forced to face situations she never thought she would have to.

Although this wasn't as addicting as the first book in the series, I did enjoy it all the same. Gabrielle knows how to put you on one roller coaster  of emotions. 

Cannot wait for book number In The Age Of Love and Chocolate by Gabrielle Zevin is set to be released in October of this year. So excited for it.

Check out this series , 4/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
