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.We have chosen for our next Reading Clean Spotlight, the amazing, and loved by three (so far) of our reviewers, LEGEND by Marie Lu. This book does have some violence in it, but is otherwise a very clean read, and also......it happens to be awesome! Wonder how much we loved it? Check out Amy's review here, Abigaile's review here, and Andye's audiobook review here.
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.
