Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees BrennanDescription:
In a city divided between opulent luxury in the Light and fierce privations in the Dark, a determined young woman survives by guarding her secrets.
Lucie Manette was born in the Dark half of the city, but careful manipulations won her a home in the Light, celebrity status, and a rich, loving boyfriend. Now she just wants to keep her head down, but her boyfriend has a dark secret of his own—one involving an apparent stranger who is destitute and despised. Lucie alone knows the young men’s deadly connection, and even as the knowledge leads her to make a grave mistake, she can trust no one with the truth.
Blood and secrets alike spill out when revolution erupts. With both halves of the city burning, and mercy nowhere to be found, can Lucie save either boy—or herself?

That is the last line in the description, and very accurate for this book. I was pleasantly surprised by this dystopian ya romance. The concept the author used to world build a land of magic and secrets, was brilliant.
I've read my share of the popular category of ya dystopian. This was one of those books that stands out. I liked that the characters were flawed, good, bad, and mostly, redeemable.
I'm looking forward to see what happens in the next installment! Four glittery stars!
