Where Legends Are Born
In Legend by Marie Lu, the United States has split apart and the majority of it is now the Republic. Day is the Republic's most wanted criminal. June is a military prodigy, living in the wealthiest circles. When June's brother is killed, Day becomes the prime suspect. June wants revenge, so she puts her genius level skills to use to catch him. What they discover is just how far the Republic is willing to go to hide its secrets.
This was a fun read because each character starts out with very strong beliefs about their world. As their perspectives change, they have to evaluate and adapt. This really made the characters stand out. As for story, there is action, betrayal, daring escapes, and a hint of romance to round it out. This combination made for a great read.
