Prodigy by Marie Lu
Transcript of Prodigy by Marie Lu
The book takes place in Las Vegas, the time of the book is not said in any moment but i am 95.372% sure that it takes place in the future since the society they live in has never occurred in this nations history.
Conflict - External
Day and June are the main protagonists of the story, they were originally against each other but then they found that they both have a common enemy, the government and its corrupt ways.
Conflict - Internal
The internal conflict is that Day and June are not murders and they are debating if they would actually kill somebody
Elector Primo dies (the president), and his son Anden takes his place. The Republic the goes into chaos, Day and June join a group of Patriot rebels that would help Day rescue his brother. They have only one request, June and Day must assassinate the new Elector (Anden).
The main antagonist in the book is Anden, the new Elector (president) who took over after the previous elector Primo died
I think the overall theme of the book is be careful who you trust
“He loved you.”
-Tess Pg. 43
“Love is illogical, love has consequences. I did this to myself, and I should be able to take it.”
-Anden Pg. 78
“All it takes is one generation to brainwash a population and convince them that reality doesn't exist.”
-Day pg. 14
Text to Self
Text to Text
A connection i made to myself is how June and Day were debating on if they could actually kill somebody, because i dont know if i would be able to kill somebody either
I couldn't really make a connection to another text because i never read a book that relates to this but any book that has to do with trust, assassination, or love would relate very well

When they found out that Razor was really working the republic
Day, the boy from the streets with nothing except the clothes on his back and the earnestness in his eyes, owns my heart.
To me overall the book was a let down compared to the first one, it lacked action and focused more on emotions, love, and all that othstuff i dont really care for in a book
I would not reccomend this book to anybody...unless you like a lot of lovey dovey stuff
Prodigy begins with Day and June traveling to the military city of Las Angeles to make contact with the Patriots. They are discovered by the Patriot rebel Kaede and brought to the office of a high ranking Republic officer, Agent DeSoto, who leads the Patriots under the name of Razor. In exchange for helping to find Day's younger brother Eden, fixing Day's severely injured leg, and migrating to the Eastern Colonies of America, Day and June agree will aid the Patriots in assassinating the new Elector.
Kaede shows Day a series of tunnels running under the warfront between the Republic and the Colonies. June is taken to the capital city of Denver, a snow covered city protected by a large shield war known as the Armor. She meets the new Elector, Anden there. Anden tells June about how the Republic began and how its intentions were good in the early years. The day of the assasination, and June tries to do her best to prevent the assasination of Anden. Kaede tells Day that she figured out that Razor is in fact working for the Republic, and the Republic senators hired Razor to assasinate the Anden the Elector. At the end, Day is reunited with Eden. But he is informed by a doctor that the Republic's experiments with him in his younger years has led a fatal brain disorder, which will cause him death.
