Rating: 4 My rating for this book is a 4 because the book had a great plot line and it was well written. I also think that the book was using too much suspense at times which is why this is not a 4.5.

Rating: 3 My rating for this book is a 3 because the book is bland in my opinion and does not have intensive detail. This book failed to get my interest and I believe the main reason was that the plot was pretty basic and I don't think it will hook many readers.

Summary: This book is about Savannah. She gets kidnapped shortly after she has a fight with her mom's boyfriend. She then finds out another girls has been in the white van she was kidnapped in for quite a few months. They then plan and talk to see if they should escape.

The Hawthorne Legacy is an interesting and suspenseful mystery novel by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. This book is about a girl named Avery and she inherits billions of dollars from the late Tobias Hawthorne. The story takes off where the first book left off, The Inheritance Games, where Avery and the four Hawthorne brothers found a secret passageway that led to a box with letters for all of them.
