      Legend, Marie Lu - Such a good book series, absolutely worth reading. It is a little slow at the beginning but if you give this a chance you will not reget it

      So everyone like me who loves all of these new dystopian future novels for young adults that have been coming out since the Hunger Games series became the next Harry Potter should definitely read this book: Legend, by Marie Lu. June and Day both grew up in the Republic, a country that consists of what was once the western united states, and that has been constantly at war with its neighbor, the colonies, since anyone can remember. June was born to one of the few wealthy elite families, and is a military prodigy. Day was born into the slums, and has lived as an outlaw for most of his life. Their two paths cross when Day becomes the number one suspect in the murder of June's brother, Metias, who is the only family she has left. But when the two come together, they find out that the Republic isn't the shining beacon of freedom it paints itself to be. Awesome book!
