Legacy: A Novel

We rated this book:


If I had to use one phrase to describe this book it would be “all over the place.” The book starts out with a little girl named Adrian and her mother, Lina, who is a fitness and yoga guru. Lina ends up killing Adrian’s father, a married serial-cheater, when he comes over to their house and attacks Adrian’s nanny, Mimi, and Adrian. Fast forward several years and Adrian has her own fitness company under her mom’s label. She starts receiving hate mail and death threats and Lina tells her that it’s part of having fame and fortune.

The book goes into heavy detail and deep discussions between Adrian and her grandparents and friends, and it seems like there are little plots all throughout the book. The story tends to waiver from the main plot of the death threats. There is also a lot of death in this book not related to the death threats, which gives the book a vibe of sadness at times. Then the story about Adrian and her friends and family picks right back up again.

Overall, this is a well-written story with nothing left out. In fact, I’d say it had a little too much content and was a bit boring at times.
