Red Queen, by Victoria Aveyard
Mare Barrow lives in a world divided by the color of your blood: Silver or Red. She is a Red, a pick-pocket, living in the Stilts, and is preparing to enter the War, which is where every Red goes if they don't have an apprenticeship. Then, when her best friend, Kilorn, must go to war, she does everything to find a way for him to stay home.
There is a way.
Mare meets Cal, who gets her a job at the Silver ruler's home. She becomes a servant, a discovers her strange power: She can control electricity. Reds never have powers--only Silvers--so this comes as a shock. She falls into a lie--known only by the royal family--to protect her. Mare, however aches for something to be done about the unfairness of the world she lives in. What lengths will she go to to save herself, and all of the Reds?
