The Chandler Legacies

We rated this book:


Beth, Ramin, Brunson, Freddy, and Spence are students at an elite boarding school called Chandler, each arriving with their own secrets and baggage.

When all five are picked for a mysterious writing group known as the Circle, they’re skeptical. But soon, the group becomes close friends, tight-knit against the complex webs of abuse and violence at Chandler. Throughout their writing, dark secrets are revealed that could shake the very foundation of the school. But would speaking out really help anyone? Or would it just make it ten times worse for the next kids in line who were like them?

They’re told to speak their truths. But will telling the truth really set them free? And can five teens really do anything to break the vicious cycle of abuse at Chandler?
I found this book to be interesting and unique. It was a complicated story with complex characters that were a pleasure to read about. Their different struggles and personalities really shine through in the graceful narrative. The events in the story, while sometimes difficult to read, are believable and tie the book together. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a powerful, empowering story.
