Book #17

Title: Lock and Key
Author: Sarah Dessen
Genre: Fiction, Young Adult
# of pages: 422
My rating of the book, F- [worst] to A [best]: A-

Description of the book: When she is abandoned by her alcoholic mother, high school senior Ruby winds up living with Cora, the sister she has not seen for ten years, and learns about Cora's new life, what makes a family, how to allow people to help her when she needs it, and that she too has something to offer others.

Review: A nice, quick read. After reading a couple of her books in which I wasn't really impressed with the story, I was somewhat hesitant in reading this book and I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the writing and was just as please with the book as I was when I read Just Listen last spring.

Up next: The Waterboy (has to be returned to the library)
