Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 November #2
    The latest example of DC's continual efforts to remix series continuity and new characters for middle-grade readers, Legacy offers a well-paced adventure with some thoughtful flourishes. Twelve-year-old Tai Pham lives in a gentrifying neighborhood in which Vietnamese people are not completely welcome. Particularly close to his Ba Noi (grandmother), he finds, shortly after the spry old woman's death, that they weren't quite as close as he thought. Turns out, she was secretly a member of the "intergalactic peacekeeping force" known as the Green Lanterns, and now her will-powered ring is his. With the support of Tommy and Serena, his best friends and confidantes, Tai undergoes Green Lantern training, which, surprisingly, relies on creativity more than battle skills. Meanwhile, he's befriended by Griffin Drew, a somewhat-too-friendly millionaire developer and tidy foil to Tai's grandma, and their differences distill the book's guiding question: should we draw strength and wisdom from the past or ignore it and forge brazenly ahead? The art is anything but old-fashioned; rather, it's dynamic and detailed, with a luster highly appealing for its readership. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
