In the wake of her parents' sudden death, Pia Marzano moves to New York City to live with her extravagant Italian family—becoming entangled in the world of age-old vendettas, illegal olive-oil trafficking, million-dollar engagement parties, and the resurgent Sicilian mafia. At the forefront of it all is Pia's uncle, Savino Vitelli—the only person who understands Pia's desire to protect her siblings, and the last person she can trust. With her unhinged cousin Massimo and the pretentiously academic Tonio at her side, Pia plots to take down the family business and end decades of tradition, obsession, and bloodshed.

Praise & Reviews

Elena Arredondo

"I was blown away by the end at the depth of the story. Legitimately - how much each character seeped into my own heart. (dare I say like oil seeps into focaccia ) How each character changed - not like in other YA novels where the female lead all of sudden can do the impossible and save the world - but real true gritty, make the hard decisions kind of growth. Growth that makes you both a sinner and a saint."

Mary E. Boasso

After years flooded with too many YA books full of dystopian story lines and vampires, "And We All Bled Oil" is something different! Edwards has created frighteningly relatable characters that draw you in from the start.

I always am searching for books that cover new topics, and this is completely different from anything I've read before! Mafia? Olive oil cartels? Characters who are interesting without a love triangle to prop them up??? Trust me, this book is worth reading. And re-reading. Probably re-re-reading...
