Prodigy by Marie Lu

Legend #2
Summary via Goodreads:
       "Injured and on the run, it has been seven days since June and Day barely escaped Los Angeles and the Republic with their lives. Day is believed dead having lost his own brother to an execution squad who thought they were assassinating him. June is now the Republic's most wanted traitor. Desperate for help, they turn to the Patriots - a vigilante rebel group sworn to bring down the Republic. But can they trust them or have they unwittingly become pawns in the most terrifying of political games?"

"The Feels"

That is what will happen when you read this amazingly fantastic sequel by Marie Lu.
The romance, the excitement, the espionage... the unrequited romance. Then there's the heartbreak... Marie Lu builds up your love for this character she's made, gives him happiness, that makes us happy, then she goes and punches us in the heart, slapping away the brand new shiny thing she's given us saying "No! You aren't allowed to feel joy, this is my story of heartache." Then I am left weeping in the corner over a fictional character.... thanks a lot Marie Lu. *grumble*
But in all seriousness, this book is amazing. As I've said before, a good book makes you feel this way about its characters. Makes you feel so much a part of the story that you feel what they feel. It hurts, but it makes the reading experience all the more enjoyable.
