Legend by Marie Lu
Summary: June and Day are supposed to be opposites in society. June is the smartest kid the Republic has ever seen and therefore she is able to afford a rich lifestyle and go to school. Meanwhile, Day is supposed to be dead due to his failure of the exam or at least incredibly poor like his parents. However, when Day, a now infamous criminal mind to the Republic, is supposedly the suspect that murdered June's brother, Metias, June is set out to kill him. However, accidentally June learns Day isn't the malicious murderer he is set out to be and that the Republic may be hiding secrets from her. *scroll down for spoilers*
Opinion: I cannot even begin to explain my love for this book. The charactors and the plot were all AMAZING. However... I do think that I may have read too many books similiar because I was able to guess the plot pretty accurately?? That didn't lessen my liking for this book though. I was still just as enthralled because this story seriously just kept me addicted and I couldn't seem to stop flipping the pages. If anyone is on the edge between choosing to read this book or not reading it PLEASE read it! I promise it's worth it! (at least to me) *scroll down for spoilers*

Favorite Quote: "Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything's possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time."
Summary Spoilers: It turns out Day actually also passed the exam with 100% just like June. June and Day also find out that the Republic has been keeping a lot of things hidden from everyone else. June's whole family has been killed just because they found out things they weren't supposed to. It turns out that the Republic has been hurting the poor and testing things on them, as well as annually spreading self made plagues. In the end, June and Day are able to get away safely.
Opinion Spoilers: As the story unfolded I guessed what the Republic was doing, but I was hoping I was wrong. I was incredibly sad when Day's brother gave his life to help Day get away. As well as the fact that now both Day and June are pretty much companionless and without any family. I can't wait to read the next book!!!
