52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody is a spontaneous novel that gives the perspective of Lexington Larrabee, the daughter of Robert Larrabee who owns the multi-billion-dollar Larrabee Media complex. Lexington is abstaining without her father who is a business man, not a family man and if they are ever together it is planned out for the world to see to keep up the family’s name.
Lexington is the heiress of millions of dollars but the way she acts gives the embers to the fire when the reporters on TV give diatribes about her. Although Lexington just scoffs when she crashes her brand-new Mercedes convertible into the convenience store after a party, her father finally thinks it’s time to stop her morbid behavior.
With Lexington’s eighteen year old birthday coming up in days, her father changes his plans and flat out refuses to give her the twenty five million dollars she is supposed to receive, making her earn it instead. If Lexington will work for one year doing fifty-two selected jobs, one per week, then at the end of the year she will gain her money, but only if she completes the mandatory requirements.
Lexington goes up and down many mountains, fighting against stone walls, and eventually she finds what she has always been searching for. Everything comes with a price and Lexington Larrabee is just figuring out how much she has to pay.
This book came from a didactic angle, telling the reader that not everyone can control their lives exactly how they want and sometimes you have to change directions and go with the shifting gears of life.
I really enjoyed this book and it embedded a four star out of five onto its cover in my mind.
I would recommend this book to anyone over twelve years old because of disdainful language over a few pages. Otherwise, I was shocked at how a book that seemed like nothing I would ever read swept me up in the chaos and was so wonderfully written with a superb moral and lesson.
