Unbreakable (The Legion Book, #1) - ADVISABLE

Garcia, Kami  Unbreakable (The Legion Book, #1), 305 pgs.  Little, Brown, and Company, 2013.  $18.00  Content: Language: PG-13 (9 swears); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG-13.  

 Kennedy lives with her mom (her dad walked out on them when she was little).  She has a photographic memory and likes to draw.  One night she goes out with her best friend, and comes home to find her mother dead.  Her aunt is ready to send her to a private school, but as she is home alone one night packing her stuff she is attacked by a ghost.  Two boys, Lukas and Jared, break into her house and save her from the ghost and proceed to tell her that she is the fifth member in the demon fighting legion.  Kennedy starts on a journey with the legion to fight Andras-an evil demon who is trying to bring hell to earth.   

This is a fast paced adventure with romance and a fight against evil.  There are holes in the character development and the relationships seem instant which annoyed me, but overall it was an entertaining book that was hard to put down.  The cover will grab young adults’ attention.
