Protagonist Jessica doesn't understand the purpose of her life, after she loses her leg in a bus accident, and is told by her doctor that she will never run again. After she searches for options to run again, she gathers inspiration from a guy able to run with an expensive, and unusual prosthetic leg. Discover the hardship of Jessica's journey, and the development of her friendship with Rosa, a girl with Cerebral Palsy. I enjoyed this book because it was different than the other books about running that I have read, and I really enjoy running, and reading so it was the best of both worlds.
Sean and Finn live alone in a small town known as Bone Gap in the Midwest. Their lives change dramatically when a woman from Poland shows up in their barn after she escaped being abducted by one of her professors. Sean and Finn help her recover from the injuries that were inflicted upon her by her professor, and she starts to fall in love with Sean. A few months later, the same person who had abducted Rosa, took her away a second time. After the abduction, Finn is unable to remember the way the kidnapper looked, and Sean is angry because he believes that Rosa left by choice. Eventually Finn discovers the kidnapper, and Rosa. In the end all is well. I enjoyed this book because, it combines mystery with mystical beings and magic. It was very different from what I have read in the past, and I would definitely recommend it.

In the end, the Colonies declare war on the Republic, and Day is shot, resulting in him being in a coma for 5 months. When he wakes up the war is over, with the republic victorious. He forgets everything, including past hardships,and June. I really enjoyed this trilogy, I would recommend it if you enjoy dystopian. It is extremely action-packed, and a page turner. I really enjoyed the book's ending, but I liked the first book the best.
Day age 16, is born into one of the Republic's poorest sectors. After he fails the Republic's exam that determines the quality of a citizen's life, he escapes being executed for failing, and he becomes the country's biggest outlaw. On the other hand June, also age 16 is born into one of the wealthiest, most prestigious families in the Republic, she becomes a prodigy in the Republic after she gets the highest score anyone has recieved on the exam. After her brother is murdered by who they believe is Day, she is sent on a mission to capture him. Together, they soon begin to discover the sinister motives of the republic, and the dastardly lengths they will go to keep these motives a secret. I really enjoyed how action-packed this book was. I couldn't stop reading these books until I was done with the series. I also enjoyed how even though there was romance, it wasn't romance-oriented. I would give it a 10/10.
