“Legend” book series rewarding, teachable novel for the classroom. Here is the culminating end for the unit. Thank you Marie Lu.
A book that offers a split narration point-of-view, theme, character analysis, terrific allusions to Robin Hood and others, and a fabulous who-done-it to solve that doesn’t give you answers till book 2 and encourages to continue reading. In addition, the characters offer terrific sarcasm and irony with endless figurative language of all kinds throughout the book for students to analyze. Give it a try.
Legend by Marie Lu
Pairs well with: Hurricane Katrina article stories of houses marked, Syrian civilians stories during present day war times, excepts of Prince and the Pauper, excerpts of Les Miserables (for which Marie Lu based some of the story)

Follow Grace and Ian into the world of the Seelie and Unseelie Courts where she finds that prophecies may choose your destiny but that was before a half human girl come to the throne. Interpretation is half the battle.
“She had made him leave his old self behind and come into her world, and then before he was really at home in it but too late to go back, she had left him stranded there—like an astronaut wandering about on the moon.”
—Katherine Paterson, Bridge to Terabithia
