Top ten invented worlds in teen books

Alwyn Hamilton is the author of Rebel of the Sands. One of her ten top invented worlds in teen fiction, as shared at the Guardian:
The Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu

The world in Marie Lu’s trilogy is our own, in the future. What sets this world apart from other dystopian worlds for me is that it is a whole world. While the first book stays in the oppressive regime of Los Angeles, the rest of the series opens the world up and we get to see other parts of the world which have evolved in clever and realistic ways, but we also get to see the outside world’s views of the oppressive government which seems so mighty from the inside. The whole thing adds up the most complex well-realised future world I can think of.
