LEGACY is author Jessica Blank’s latest novel Blank has also written ALMOST HOME and KARMA FOR BEGINNERS along with several plays In terms of plot and premise LEGACY is very different from most of the YA books I’ve read but it does explore the ideas of finding oneself and discovering purpose common themes in many well loved young adult novelsLEGACY is about 17 year old Alison whose older brother Andy died in a car accident several years before the story takes place Following her brother’s death Alison’s personal and family life has become dark and difficult Her experience in high school has not been great either she has to deal with nasty bullying and her ability to graduate is in jeopardy due to absences All Alison really wants to do is spend time with her punk rock boyfriend and finally get out of Tacoma Washington However when her boyfriend Jeff gets kicked out by his dad and Alison gets into a massive fight with her mom the two of them decide to join a group of environmentalists protecting a forest of ancient trees from being cut down It starts out has just having a place to stay and sleep at night but soon Alison begins to understand the importance of protecting the woods from destruction She begins putting herself on the line to work with the environmentalists and stop Cascade the lumber company from cutting down the trees As she works for something she truly cares about she finds compassion true friends and something that inspires her and brings her the purpose she neededFor the first couple of chapters I had a hard time staying engaged with LEGACY and the novel moved a little slow I was also frustrated by the somewhat stereotypically way in which Blank portrayed Alison as a moody bitter teen Jeff Alison’s boyfriend also did seem possessive of her at times though thankfully that situation was handled well in the story by Blank However once Alison arrived at the Free State where the environmentalists were protecting the trees the novel became much interesting and picked up paceTowards the middle of LEGACY I found it hard to even put the book down It seemed like Blank wrote the book in a way that allowed the book to become better and interesting as Alison’s life became better and purposeful I loved that the character of Alison became confident and strong as the novel went on and how Blank constructed the friendships Alison and some of the environmentalists it really showed how she was finding herselfAt times the plot could be a bit redundant but the character development of Alison and her personal journey of becoming of her own person is really what makes LEGACY a well written interesting book She grows from being a moody frustrated grief stricken teenager into a powerful caring person which is not something that usually happens in shorter novels like LEGACY The character development did not seem too rushed or awkward; it was a smooth transition that really showed the uality of writing in the novel When I first picked up LEGACY I was almost positive that I would not like it but soon enough I couldn’t put it down and wanted to read even LEGACY is a uick but great readLEGACY is the perfect novel for anyone looking for a coming of age YA story but with a uniue and unconventional plot I would also recommend LEGACY to anyone looking for a uicker but still worthwhile read or for anyone who is looking for a book that is not set exactly in the present day as LEGACY takes place in the mid 1990s with many references to punk rock cultureReviewed by Ansley K Teen Board Member
