The book "The Legacy" by Lurlene McDaniel is a book about a young girl named Jenny who is diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 16. Jenny Was a healthy girl who was care free and was so excited for the up coming summer. One of her best friends named Richard was coming up to visit and she was so excited. Right when Richard came to town Jenny Meet him and was eager to go off and make many summer plans. But when she suddenly gets sick there whole summer gets changed.
In my opinion this is one of th
Eh. It was okay. I don't do so well with books about illness and dying right now so I stayed pretty far detached from the story. Jenny's battle with leukemia and her grandmother's struggle with losing yet another family member should have been more moving to me than it was, I suspect, especially with the love story of Richard mixed in there. I feel McDaniel probably did her research as far as some of the feelings kids have when they are faced with these kinds of diseases, but it felt a little gr ...more

You find out in this book who JWC is & how & why the One Last Wish Foundation was created. Taking a little break before I finish the rest of the series. But have liked what I have read so far. Can't wait to finish the rest of the series & see what happens

Glad I read the first book that started it all. ...more
I really loved Lurlene McDaniel books when I was in Jr. high, and this one was my favorite. When I was a child a couple people in my family were sick and died. McDaniel's books were like therapy for me, they helped to understand and to cope, they made me realize I wasn't the only one who lost someone. These aren't the best in terms of writing but they are short and serve their purpose. I believe I read that the author started writing this series when her son was diagnosed with diabetes and she w ...more

This is the story of who the person who gave the sick children money and the chances to live their dreams. Her name is Jenny and she was battling leukemia, and there was also a little bit of romance with a certain somebody. Like the other books from Lurlene McDaniel, this was very heartwarming.

Recommends it for: fans of the author, fans of the series, people who enjoy tearjerkers
Jenny is a rich girl who gets Leukimia, and suddenly her world comes crashing down. She knows she can never have a future with the boy she loves, and she knows she is going to die. So Jenny tells her grandmother to create a foundation for sick teens like her, and give them checks for $100000 to do whatever they want, for their one last wish.
Made me cry and very emotional. I still remember this story form my childhood days. She is a rich heiress and the last of her name. Even though they never really dated, the guy never marries because of her.This book made such an impression on me back when I was ten that I continued reading her books for years!
