Legend by Marie Lu

Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy. Obedient, passionate, and committed to her country, she is being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. 
Born into the slums of the Republic’s Lake Sector, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal... 
From different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother is murdered, and Day becomes the prime suspect. Now, caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival while June tries desperately to avenge her brother’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together and the sinister lengths their country will go to in order to keep its secrets.
Imagine Hunger Games as a murder mystery, and with a (slightly) faster blooming romance. If you think that might be something you would like, read this right now! Legend is a little less gory than Hunger Games, but is probably appropriate for the same age group.
5/5 stars
