    AMAZING book!! Anyone who is new to YA fiction or needs a good book to read: This one! Legend by Marie Lu

  • Cammy

    Legend (Marie Lu) This is an awesome young adult dystopian novel! June is a rich girl working for the government, and Day is a bad boy criminal (so you know they are going to get together!). The plot focuses on June chasing down Day, and the events that occur because of that. If you haven't read the book DON'T READ PAST THIS! Okay! So I loved June's character! She was so tough, fierce, and strong. I just loved how empowered she was! Day gives the emotional side to the story, which is nice. I liked how the romance didn't happen immediately, but gradually. I feel like the thing with Day's mom being killed could have been avoided, and that was really sad (important to the plot though). Both of the characters really developed! I just loved this book, and I would recommend it to anyone who like The Hunger Games or Divergent.

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. Apparently the idea for the Vincent Price film 'The Last Man Alive' (which is brilliant by the way). The author hasn't cared for any adaptations, but I am curious about it.

Very different, but really good!!

Adore dystopian teen novels. I'm actually working on a unit plan involving lit circles and a couple of these books. W00t for more resources!

Amazing trilogy - countdown is on for movie release on March 23rd!!

A disappointment. This book won YA novel of the year. I like the setting in a dystopian Chicago and the idea of factions, but the protagonist's "growth" was more of a devolution into immaturity. A clever idea, but it feels like the book just lost direction after the initial good start.

Prodigy by Marie Lu (Book # 2 in the Legend Series)

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives.
