I have an odd system for rating books.
If I can last 15 minutes on a walk before throwing it at something, it’s not good. 30 minutes– tolerable. If I wind around the neighborhood for around an hour before realizing my feet hurt, it’s a seriously good book. If I plop down on the porch after said hour and Ben opens the door to check the mail and finds me, it’s a really really good book.
Legacy by Molly Cochran is in the last category. Even though I’m tired of the YA paranormal stuff, Legacy mixes traditional witch legends with a wonderful story and strong character with Katy. I don’t want to give the plot away, but Goodreads’ lists the synopsis here.
My version: 16-year-old Katy is not happy. Her father is dumping her off in boarding school to live with his new girlfriend in the same town where her mother went crazy and set herself on fire. Plagued with rumors, Katy is worried about fitting in until she realizes she’s not in a normal town, but a supernatural one made of witches. Not only is she a witch, but her mother was one of the most powerful witches of her generation. As Katy learns to harness her powers and more about her family’s secrets, she’s charged with saving the town from dark forces before it’s too late.
When you have a good book, you need something really tasty to eat with it.
Like pie. I ate three pieces. Really. Then I realized 29 is not 19 and three pieces of pie means a date with Pepto Bismol.
Totally worth it.
It’s my sister’s recipe, which she holds as a deep dark secret….
Excuse me. I have to go run before she sees this.
Stay tuned, Invisible Friends! A new fun post awaits!
