Girl tracks down infamous boy after he killed her brother in a dystopian LA.
Cover: Display or Shelve?
At first glance, I’d say shelve. It doesn’t particularly stand out. But then you look at it more closely – dramatic girl standing on rooftop looking out over the city – and it’s actually pretty awesome.
I loved this book. Its a bit different to all the other dystopians that seem to only focus on romance. Yes, this has romance, but there’s also action and guns and a cool broken city with some blocks half submerged. Day – the boy is who a wanted criminal – is an interesting (and good-looking – apparently he looks like young Leonardo diCaprio) guy and June – the girl – is very smart and independent and can handle a gun. She also gets to wear cool dresses and military outfits depending on the occasion.
Reread or Remember?
Yep, this is a trilogy. But that’s awesome as I want more of these characters and to see more of the broken cities. I’d definitely reread!
