Prodigy - Marie Lu I think that one of the most difficult jobs an author has is making a story feel real especially when a story isn't based in reality. Marie Lu does a fantastic job of just that.

Prodigy is a book that gets under your skin. When you're not reading it, you're thinking about it. June and Day are not just characters, they are people. They are flawed and interesting and amazing people.

This is not one of those tired YA books where the outcome is obvious. When characters die you are SHOCKED. There is no warning, just BAM someone you never thought would die DOES die and you aren't even given time to be all sad and weepy because shit is happening at breakneck speed. When the plot twists come up you never once question them. They make sense! And they actually are surprises.

I didn't know how this book was going to end until all of a sudden I ran out of book to read. It was heartbreaking and infuriating and so, SO good.

I instruct you all to go and read Legend right now. And once you have done that, you MUST pick up Prodigy and read it. Right now. RIGHT NOW!

And once you are done you can read this... I cannot believe that Day didn't tell June he was dying! Now she thinks he doesn't want to be with her because of HER! That is horrible! And seriously, how dying is he? Like, dying in 10 years dying or dropping dead in a week dying!? THERE IS A DIFFERENCE! WHY CAN'T THEY JUST BE TOGETHER FOREVER!? *flails*
