Last year a student recommended I read Ruby Red, but I put it off.  However, when I did pick it up, I couldn’t put it down! This is an excellent series that combines historical fiction, romance, and timetravel.  I love the costumes and characters-which is probably why this series is constantly flying off the shelf . It is great for middle grade readers because of the purity of the romance.

There are two new series for you and one great stand alone book. Watch the video for the full review. Happy reading!

Review of Legend

Legend (Legend, #1)Legend by Marie Lu

Lu, Marie. Legend. New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 2011. Print.

If you are on the waiting list for Divergent, this book is the library’s best kept secret!

In the future, the world is governed by a totalitarian republic. The poor are dying from an incurable plague and the military is formed with brainwashed youth willing to do whatever their leaders ask.

A young man named Day attempts to fight the republic on his own.

A young woman of the republic seeks to destroy Day.

But when they meet- what would happen if they fall in love?

This dystopian novel reminded me a lot of Stephen King’s The Running Man with a dash of Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden love. The story is divided by a female narrator and a male narrator, so all teens will love hearing the he said/ she said explanations!

The novel left room for a sequel, but I believe this is a one-stop book! It was nice to read a book that started and ended in one take!!

Great adventure, realistic romance (not over the top -blah like HG), and a good theme about a controlling government that all politically concerned teens should read!
