If you liked the hunger games then you will certainly like this.  I am a little behind in getting to these books.  I couldn’t put legend down and stayed up way too late reading into the night (a habit of mine).  This is another dystopian novel of our (well the United States) possible future with children as the heroes of course.  The main characters are a boy named Day and girl named June.  Both are fifteen years old and intelligent and savvy.  But of course they are on opposite sides of society.  June is living life in the high social order of the ruling class and Day is a criminal.  This leads to a somewhat predictable yet always enjoyable through line in the relationship between the two of them.  The first book does not get too much into the underlying problems of the leaders or politics of the Republic but the hints are there for the next book in the series.  I hope I get a lot more details and specifics.  Onward!

Amazon has this to say about the novel:

What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths – until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills.
