Legend Tough-o-Meter

By Marie Lu

Tough-o-Meter

(4) Base Camp

The writing style and linear storyline in Legend make it pretty easy for readers to follow. After all, the language is simple and crisp, and there's no ambiguity about who is telling the story or what's going on. A bit more complexity creeps in when it comes to ideas about government and self-autonomy, and this might trip up younger readers, but overall it's a fun book for anyone who likes action, adventure, and fighting back against the man.
