The following book talk has been submitted by sixth grader Jaden P.
Legend by Marie Lu is a dystopian book like The Hunger Games and Divergent. This book takes place in the future where everything is different. The Colonies and Republic are at war while a raging plague is all over the area. The characters are June Iparis, a Republic prodigy, and Day Wing, a criminal legend. June is trying to find Day to take revenge for her brother's death, but a twist happens sending them on their journey.
For me, this book is amazing! I think the book was written well and had great details. I love that the book is set in the future so I can see the things that have changed. The characters are strong and powerful in this book, and that's another reason I like it. I am recommending this book because it is a great read. The reader gets to see into the minds of two people. It's very interesting to see two completely different lives intertwine to make the story.

Thank you, Jaden, for sharing this book! This series is going on my summer TBR list!
P.S. Reading is like breathing chocolate air!
