Legendby:Marie Lupages:305

Book Review by:Aidan LaffertyGenre: action

Theme: I believe that the theme is trust. June has to do that when Day says that he didn't kill her brother

RecommendationI would recommend this book to people who like fast paced action and drama. If you like the Hunger Games or Divergent series this novel is very similar.

Connection:I can make a text to text connection to Divergent by Veronica Roth because in Legend, Day is always running and hiding because he is a fugitive. In Divergent Tris is Divergent and needs to hide this from others.

Literary Element 2:Climax, The climax was very dramatic.Evidence: June finds out that her brother is dead and pledges to find the ruthless murderer.

Literary Element 1: Setting, The setting in Legend was the future in a sector.Evidence: This book is set in the future. Sector 7 is where all the poor and homeless people go to live.
