June witnesses the interrogation of a spy from the Colonies, another North American country in perpetual war with the Republic. She is appalled by the violent beating delivered by Thomas. June poses as a street urchin and goes searching for Day.
She gets in a street fight, stepping in for a young girl named Tess, and beats the previous champion, Kaede. June is stabbed in the process. Day rescues June, unaware of her identity, and Tess, a friend of Day's, sets about healing June.
Day and June begin to develop romantic feelings for each other, but June realizes who he is and reports his family's location to Thomas and the Republic.
Day attempts to defend his family's house from Republic soldiers, but Thomas kills his mother and Day is captured by June's commanding officer, Commander Jameson.
Thomas congratulations a horrified June on a job well done. June questions Day on his long list of crimes; Day insists he is innocent of Metias's murder.
June reviews Day's files and discovers he got a perfect score on the Trial, a comprehensive test administered at age 10 to determine the child's future role in society. However, instead of being celebrated as a prodigy like June herself, the Republic falsified records to indicate Day failed his Trial and died in a labor camp.
While Day is being moved to a new cell, he sees evidence that the Republic is intentionally spreading the Plague. Day is further tortured by Commander Jameson and sentenced to death.
June informs Day that John is in a cell and Eden has been sent to labs on the warfront. Day tells June about painful tests inflicted on him after supposedly failing the Trial.
Children sent to "work camps" are actually killed or used for experimentation in laboratories; Day escaped after being left for dead.
Day tells June his theory about the origins of the Plague. Later, protestors gather in support of Day; June watches Thomas order his soldiers to fire on the protestors. Day is interrogated by Thomas and learns that Kaede, the girl beaten in a street fight by June, is a Patriot spy; the Patriots are a rebel group connected with the Colonies. That night, June determines that Metias was actually murdered by Thomas, covered up by Commander Jameson.
Metias left a coded message for June, revealing that their parents were murdered for discovering the true purposes of the Plague: a method of culling the weaker Republic populations, and a biological weapon against the Colonies. Day learns that Eden was the index case for a new Plague strain. June decides to break Day and John out, and she goes to meet with Kaede to strike a deal with the Patriots.
June and the Patriots plot an escape plan, but Jameson moves up the execution date. June attempts to rescue Day and John on her own but is arrested by Thomas. Their confrontation is halted by attacking Patriots, and June escapes with Day in the chaos; John sacrifices himself, and the Republic claims that Day has been executed.
Day and June decide to visit the Colonies and then head to the warfront labs to rescue Eden. Characters[ edit ] June Iparis, a fifteen-year-old prodigy who scored a perfect on her Trial, the Republic's mandatory test system.
Born into an elite Republic family, her parents were mysteriously killed in a car crash, leaving Metias, her older brother, to care for her. When Metias is murdered with Day as the prime suspect, June sets out to take revenge by finding Day, only to fall in love with him.
Later, she uncovers a conspiracy behind Metias' death that leads her to betray her country. She is extremely analytical and smart, able to keenly survive on the streets, and a bit of an uptight person.
She has long, dark brown hair usually tied back in a high ponytail, as well as dark brown eyes with golden flecks in them. Daniel "Day" Altan Wing, a fifteen-year-old rebellious criminal born in the slums of the Republic. Day is the Republic's most-wanted criminal and the prime suspect of Metias's murder. He is of mixed race heritage from a Mongolian father and a Caucasian mother with long, light blond hair and luminous baby blue eyes.
He has a limp in his left leg and an "imperfection" a lighter patch of blue in one eye from when the Republic experimented on him. Day is described as being extremely agile, even more so than June. He, like June, is confident and stubborn. Thomas Alexander Bryant, Metias's friend who is infatuated with June and has a special hatred of Day because June had kissed him. Like Day, he was born in the slums, but took the government extremely seriously and clawed his way through the hierarchy to become a lieutenant and later captain of the Republic's army.
It is later revealed that he was the one who murdered Metias under orders from the Republic and had framed Day for it.
Metias Iparis, June's older brother. Like her, he has brown hair and eyes with flecks of gold in it. Metias was murdered one night while guarding plague medicine.
It is eventually revealed that Metias knew he would be killed by the Republic for uncovering a conspiracy.
His murder was committed by none other than his best friend, Thomas. He was ordered to do so. He was twenty-seven when he died, being 12 years older than June.
Commander Jameson, Metias' hardcore military commander who gains June an early graduation from Drake, so June can join Jameson's squad. Jameson gives June the assignment to find Metias' murderer. However, we later find out that Jameson herself commanded Thomas to murder Metias. She also commands Thomas to shoot Day's mother.
