Legend by Marie Lu, a post-apocalyptic novel

Written by eastern writer on Friday, February 18, 2011

Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: November 28th 2011 by Putnam Juvenile


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.

Day.

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

The truth they'll uncover will become legend

    As a result, they attempt to follow their lead, which often leads to the development of negative, dangerous or even delinquent models of behavior if violence is abundantly present on television. In such a context, the way violence is represented in television and media at large is particularly important because it shapes the youth’s attitude to violence in the real life.
