Review: Legend (Legend #1) by Maria Lu

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.
This book starts off in an action packed world with a young lady named June who has lost her mother and father and now her brother is taking care of her. Her brother is a top ranking officer in the Republics army and she is well on her way of becoming a superior of him. That is until the day she meets Day.
Day is a young outlaw who would do anything to help his family. He has stolen money from the Republic and even from rich people on the streets. The book starts out by making him look like a criminal but stay with it and you will find out why he's done some things that might not be so bad. Also if you like this book check out the next part in the series Prodigy!
