Fans have long hoped for another book in the Legend series and Marie Lu, as usual, has not disappointed. With her latest release, Rebel, we get even more out of familiar characters and have new light shed on others. We’re beyond ecstatic to host Marie Lu as our YA Keynote! In its review of Rebel, Publishers Weekly says that "this tale of intrigue, alliances, and love will draw Legend fans and new readers into a fascinating world whose combined layers of privilege and surveillance draw comparisons to many present-day social ills." While the Legend series followed the romantic relationship between Day and June, Rebel focuses more on the brother relationship between Day and Eden, which adds a new dimension to already familiar relationships. Day is focused on keeping Eden safe, even at the cost of Day’s relationship with June. This story of interwoven relationships, politics, and change is sure to tug at the heartstrings and keep eager readers on the edge of their seats. Between Lu’s unmatched ability to craft suspense and her signature cinematic storytelling, Rebel is sure to satisfy Lu’s many eager and patient fans! Bring those burning questions you’ve been dying to ask the legendary writer herself and join moderator Siân Gaetano, children’s and YA editor at Shelf Awareness, in conversation with Marie Lu. Sponsored by Simmons University.
