Tai lives with his parents and grandmother in the apartment above the family store, which seems to be getting vandalized more and more often. Tai’s family thinks about selling out, to avoid the violence. But a strange thing happens to Tai when his grandma dies. He ends up with her green jade ring. He soon discovers he has inherited more than a ring when he discovers special powers passed from his grandma to him, and that he is now part of group of space cops called the Green Lanterns.
Green Lantern Legacy by Minh Lê and Andie Tong is a graphic novel with a young superhero learning about his special powers and the responsibility and danger that come with them. With the help of his two best friends and his new superhero mentor, he figures out how to recognize the bad guys and fight for what’s right.
Green Lantern Legacy is a fun read full of action; I recommend it for ages 9 to 13.
