*****So, can I just say how much I LOVE the cover for this book?? It is so freaking gorgeous! I love the poison green color of the snake wrapped around the girl's neck and how she's hidden in shadow. Seriously, this cover alone makes me want to read this book, but then the synopsis also sounds amazing! Arcadia Awakens centers around a girl from a Mafia family, which is something I've never read about, especially not as a theme in a YA book, so I am pretty psyched! Also, I'm not sure, but this book may have been originally written in German?? Goodreads says that it's original title was Arkadien erwacht. Look below for more details!
