Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Thoughts:

This was a great YA novel.  No profanity, no inappropriate relationships.  Just how I like them.  *Smile*.  I enjoyed the story too.  There were some twists involved that surprised me.  The two main characters are smart — and there were some almost “Sherlockian” observations made.  You know I like those kinds of characters.  I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Recommendations:

Would I recommend this to fellow book lovers?  Yes.
Would I recommend this to my teen daughter?  Yes.

Rating:

5 of 5 stars.
