All These Things I’ve Done

Gabrielle Zevin, read by Ilyana Kadushin. Macmillan Young Listeners, unabridged, eight CDs, 10 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-1-4272-1358-7
Approximately 50 years in the future, New York is a ruined city where goods are rationed and chocolate is illegal. Anya Balachine, orphaned teen daughter of a chocolate-producing crime boss, struggles to keep her brother and sister safe and avoid the dangers of her extended crime family, while simultaneously navigating normal teenage problems: school, friends, and boys. Narrator Ilyana Kadushin perfectly captures Anya’s character, providing the heroine with a voice that sounds young and vulnerable, but strong-willed. With the exception of some members of the crime family—who sound vaguely similar—Kadushin creates a range of unique voices and accents for the cast of characters. The excitement and drama of the book’s early chapters translate well to audio and will keep listeners on the edge of their seats. And while the middle portion of the book lags, Kadushin’s rendition of Anya remains strong and memorable throughout, easily keeping listeners engaged in her story. A Farrar, Straus and Giroux hardcover. (Sept.)
