Description from Goodreads:

The United States is gone, along with its flooded coasts. North America's two warring nations, the western Republic and the eastern Colonies, have reached a breaking point. In the midst of this broken continent and dark new world are two teenagers who will go down in history....

Born into the slums of Los Angeles, fifteen-year old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. A mysterious boy with no recorded image or fingerprints. A boy who should no longer exist. A boy who watches over his family until one evening, when the plague patrols mark his family's door with an X--the sign of plague infection. A death sentence for any family too poor to afford the antidote. Desperate, Day has no choice; he must steal it.

Born to an elite family in Los Angeles' wealthy Ruby sector, fifteen-year old June is the Republic's most promising prodigy. A superintelligent girl destined for great things in the country's highest military circles. Obedient, passionate, and committed to her country--until the day her brother Metias is murdered while on patrol during a break-in at the plague hospital.

Only one person could be responsible.


And now it's June's mission to hunt him down.

The truth they'll uncover will become legend


  1. I'm sooo excited for this one to come out! I read a few months ago that the film rights have already been sold on it and I've been dying to read it ever since. Great WoW pick :)

    My WoW post is here:
    Kaity - Bitten Books

  2. I've always wondered if someone would make America into warring nations again. This sounds great!

  3. Great pick. I have been eyeing this one for a while myself. Here is mine: Fragments of Fiction

  4. Great choice. I am really looking forward to this one too!

  5. Wow...Blogger so totally deleted my comment. I'll echo what I wrote before. The whole idea of dividing the US into warring factions is AWESOME!


I love comments, and I will definitely read anything that is left here. Don't be shy, I'd love to know what you are thinking!
