My last book conquest was from my 7th grade reading list – Legend by Marie Lu. Honey read it a few years ago and said it was great. I really enjoyed it as well and recommend picking it up! My actual 7th grader hasn’t started it yet, but I think (hope… pray…) that he will enjoy it when they start in the new year. He loved reading in elementary school but hasn’t read more than a paragraph for enjoyment in over a year. I do get it.
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.
The Legend series is trilogy, with a couple of .5’s thrown in. I have added the others to my book list.
