Lu, Marie. Legend. 2011 (YA Science Fiction Lu.M)

"What can I read that's like Hunger Games?" This dystopian novel is set in a Los Angeles of the future beset by two wars--one between the "haves"' and the "have-nots" within the city, one with the rebellious Colonies in the lands beyond. Chapters alternate between 16-year old Day, a Robin Hood-like criminal trying to provide for his family and protect them from the Plague, and June, a 15-year old talented military trainee who's both wealthy and brilliant and set on capturing Day to avenge her brother's death. June goes undercover in the city to find Day, and in finding him discovers much more.

(Nancy E., North Branch)
