Y’all, I just recently read Marie Lu’s Legend, and I am in LOVE!
He’s handsome. He’s smart. He’s brave. He’s thoughtful. Everything a book boyfriend SHOULD be!
Yes, he’s a criminal, but could you BLAME him?
The corrupt militaristic government is appalling! Sending ten year old kids to be tested for potential, and then shipping off “failures” to “labor camps,” where they actually become lab rats in sick government experiments before they’re ultimately killed?! WHAT THE EVEN HECK?!
Thank BOB Day survived!
And it’s that same scrappiness and courage that makes him such an irresistible character. That and his compassion. He’s like a dystopian Robin Hood, stealing from the government and giving to those in the plague-infested slums. Despite being legendary, he continues to help his family, and he even “adopts” a little girl off of the streets who couldn’t survive on her own.
I can’t get enough of this hero.
Even after going through so much (unspeakably horrible things), he continues to fight for what’s right. I’ve got to admit, I’m a little bit in love with Day, making him this week’s ManCrushMonday!
