Brandyn (Brandy) Harris, a lonely, abused, and terminally ill twelve-year-old boy builds his private virtual world outside the knowledge of his strict and abusive parents. Denied the ability to interact with other kids in his everyday life, Brandy finds refuge within the confines of the Internet in his early stages, where it appealed primarily to the outcasts, and a close group of virtual teen friends.
The Legacy offers a unique, unparalleled glimpse into the mind of abused children while this abuse is taking place amid the hysteria surrounding the Satanic Ritual Abuse Panic of the early 1990s. An outstanding page-turner, it gives you an unprecedented, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience, through first-hand, day-to-day accounts as they occur, a real-world of childhood desperation and painful secrets, a world-known by millions of children, but never openly shared with adults.
You'll feel Brandy's feelings, cry his tears and laugh with him on the good days as you'll journey through the candid and honest secrets of an abusive childhood, as Brandy's correspondences are written by kids, for kids. Thus, you'll learn the truths kids only tell their friends, outside the inherent inhibitions derived from adult interference.
This book is the first volume in an epic book series based on real events and the writings and correspondences of a terminally ill young boy who is also enduring a life of physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

Wow, Brandy. I've never thought about that before. About how it would be not to have any brothers or sisters. I've just taken it for granted.
I can't imagine not knowing, or understanding, how it feels.
But, that note was also... sad? Some of what you said worries me a little. I'm starting to think some things here.
I'm becoming kind of concerned for you. You DO know we all care about you, right?
I better stop now before I cry, because I'm about to right now.
Brandy, this is a more serious note.
You've given me a very, very interesting perspective to think about. A pespective I'd never even considered before.
Thank you, and don't worry about anything, little Buddy!
You're a great guy.
If you had any brothers or sisters, I know they'd just love you!
