Lock and Key
By: Sarah Dessen
Lock and Key is about a girl, Ruby, who lives with her mother alone in an old, rundown farm house. Ruby’s mother randomly leaves, without warning, and makes Ruby live on her own. She is later found and taken to her older sister, Cora’s, house to start a new life. Ruby has many challenges in her life. Some other characters are Cora’s husband Jamie, and her neighbor Nate. I would compare this book to the other book I read, Dreamland. They both deal with important family, and friend issues.

I really like the story plot behind this book. I disliked how the book had a very slow pace in the middle. When I read the book it made me feel the pain and suffering the characters were feeling. You really have to commit yourself to the book, or you will get lost. I think if the author, Sarah Dessen, would add suspense in the middle of the plot, you could really get into the book.

I learned that even if one door closes, another one will eventually open. Reading this book made me realize how hard some people’s lives are. You should be thankful for everything that you have. Be happy for what you have, and think of the less fortunate. This book really makes you look in other people’s perspective.
