Day is 14. He failed his trial and has been wandering on the streets with Tess, occasionally checking up on his family. His status is most wanted. June is 14. She scored 100% on her trial. She's in a 16 and above university. When Day's family catches the plague, he needs to get medicine to them urgently. But after a break in to a hospital goes wrong and Day ends up killing June's brother, June has sworn to get revenge on Day. June and Day meet by chance, not knowing who the other is, and are instantly irresistibly drawn to one another. Will June let her feelings crush her soldier training? This book is amazing! When I picked it up I read it in 2 hours flat, unwilling to put it down. I would only recommend it to anyone aged 12 and above.
