“Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything’s possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time.”
What once was the United States is now the Republic and the Colonies which are at war.
Fifteen-year-old June from the wealthiest district is the Republic’s Prodigy and fifteen-year-old Day from the slum sectors is the country’s most wanted criminal.
Two people who would never have thought that they would cross paths until Metias, June’s brothers death. With Day being accused of his murder, June is on the hunt for him.
With the truth uncovered, June finally knows where her loyalties should lie.
