"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

Legend by Marie Lu


         Day's exploits used to fascinate me.  But now he is my matched enemy—my target.  My First mission.
         I gather my thoughts for two days.  On the third day, I call Commander Jameson.  I have a plan.
(Page 49)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Legend was released on November 29, and it is so worth picking up!  I love that the main female protagonist was raised in a military position.  this isn't something you see often.  Usually the story starts off with the female, while not weak, having to learn to become something tough.  This is the opposite, and I find it very cool to read!
