June is a 15 year old military prodigy living in the privileged sector of the Republic which used to be the Western United States. Her brother gets killed while chasing one of the Republic's most notorious criminals. Day is the most notorious criminal. He gets injured while stealing plague medicine to help his little brother. When June decides to track down Day, she discovers there is more to the Republic that she ever guessed.

I quite enjoyed this book. I just love dystopian futures. To me, they just have more potential. Anyway, this is a good one. I would've liked a little more backstory on Day to start out with. However, it turns out that the lack actually plays into some of the revelations. Day and June are both really interesting characters. Day is a very Robin Hood-esque character. So, I loved the characters and I liked the action/ drama involved. I hope there will be another book and the ending seemed to suggest it.
