Review: Life Before Legend (Legend, #0.5)

Life Before Legend {Legend, #0.5}/ Marie Lu

Legend proved itself as one of the best books in the YA novels of 2011, but what about it's prologue?

Two stories are included in this novella: the story of Day's first kiss and the story of June's first day at Drake U. If you didn't read the first book, Legend, it's not recommended for you to read the review or the novella itself.

Plot:
Day- I found Day's story not very entertaining. It was dull to read, even from his perspective, and I felt that the girl was just there. This could be inserted somewhere in the second book.
June- Her story was much likeable. It shows us more of June's personality and the relationship between her and her brother, Metias.

Writing:
Just as in the novel, June's point of view is written much better (and side comments are used flawlessly) while Day has a typical writing for a guy in a girly YA book.
Overall:
The characters are the same lovely characters from the book, just showing their past. I would reccomend reading only June's story, though.
