I read a lot of books, but I don’t usually write book reviews on my dad blog. However, I decided to write about a book I read recently, Legend, because it is a good book and it was written by a new author, Marie Lu (her first book). Legend is a good read and it is one of those books that hooks you from the start. The book is intended for adults and children (tweens and teens), and should appeal to many fans of the Hunger Games book series. BTW, here is something parents should be happy to hear: the book doesn’t have any bad language or sexual content. Legend is available now at bookstores for $17.99 (Amazon is currently selling the hardcover for $12.23 and the Kindle version for $10.99).
