Waiting on Wednesday -Legend

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each week we are invited to feature the books we're anxiously waiting to read.

My Pick for this week:

Legend (Legend, #1)

Legend by Marie Lu
To be published November 2011 by Putnam

What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles.
Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.
From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias'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 keep its secrets.
Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills.
This sounds totally like my type of book, and early reviews have been wonderful- can't wait!
