Summary: Natalia DuPrau is the Pandora.
On the night of her fifteenth birthday, Nati receives a thermos in an unmarked cardboard box. Only this suspicious package contains something far more dangerous than anthrax. Nati is the newest incarnation of Pandora, the Eve of Greek mythology, and her birthday thermos was never meant to hold instant chow mein. With the help of Sin, a seventeen-year-old boy who’s a self-proclaimed “Pandora’s Box-seeker extraordinaire,” and a bracelet named Hope, she embarks on a mission to recapture the evils she’s released.
But Sorrow, Pain, Disease, Death and Conflict aren’t eager to return to their cookware prison. To add to the problem, Nati’s new demon-catching boyfriend just might be one of those demons, himself. When Sin’s twin sister, Virtue, arrives in Montréal with the goal of saving Nati’s soul, Nati learns that sometimes the line between perfect good and perfect evil can be uncomfortably blurry.
