What I’m waiting for : Legend by Marie Lu

The flooded coast of former Los Angeles. Two warring nations of North America—the Republic and the Colonies.

Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy. Obedient, passionate, and committed  to her country, she is being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles.

Born into the slums of the Republic’s Lake Sector, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother is murdered. And Day becomes the prime suspect. Now, caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival while June tries desperately to avenge her brother’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 in order to keep its secrets.

I know, I always present dystopian novels but it’s my favorite kind of YA novels right now, there are so many different ways to present an apocalyptic world, it fascinates me. I’ve read the first pages here and it was quite good so I’m looking forward to reading the entire book.

The film rights have already been acquired by CBS films with Temple Hill Producers including Wyck Godfrey, the Twilight Saga producer!
