Renegades

November 5th, 2019 - Posted in Library News -

by Marissa Meyer, 556 pages, Grades 8 and up.

In the old days “prodigies” used their superhuman skills to save society from anarchy and destruction. Nova was a little girl at the time and when the Renegades, a group of prodigies, took control of the government to bring about peace and justice when the world was full of chaos. The Renegades promised to keep people safe, but Nova’s parents were killed anyway and Nova cannot forgive the Renegades for this injustice. She is a prodigy herself and has made it her life’s mission to avenge her parents’ murder. She has allied herself with a group of prodigy villains who plan to take down the Renegades and bring about anarchy where all people can make their own rules and take care of themselves. It happens that nothing is as simple as good and evil, and Nova finds herself seeing both qualities in places where she did not expect to. What is the right path? Who can be sacrificed for the greater good? How will Nova know whether her actions will really be the right choice?
