Faculty Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard (Red Queen, #1)

Image from RRHS Catalog

A young thief's world is divided by the color of her blood. Those with silver blood have supernatural powers and rule the world. Those with red blood are considered inferior by the silver elite. Mare Barrow steals what she can to help her family survive. She is caught up in a series of tragic events while trying to help a friend. Mare finds herself in grave danger when it is discovered that she is different from other Reds. She has a power she doesn't understand and the Silvers fear. This book is very good; I enjoyed discovering how Mare learns about her world, her powers, and how she struggles to change how the Reds are treated. You would like this book if you like… fantasy or science fiction as it is a superhero type of story set in the future.
