Lock and Key- By Sarah Dessen

Ruby, where is your mother?

Ruby knows that the game is up. For the past few months, shes been on her own in the yellow house, managing somehow, knowing that her mother will probably never return. That's how she comes to live with Cora, the sister she hasn't seen in ten years, and Cora's husband Jamie, whose down-to-earth demeanor makes it hard for Ruby to believe he founded the most popular networking Web site around. A luxurious house, fancy private school, a new wardrobe, the promise of college and a future its a dream come true. So why is Ruby such a reluctant Cinderella, wary and defensive? And why is Nate, the genial boy next door with some secrets of his own, unable to accept the help that Ruby is just learning to give?


This book is the first book I have read by Sarah Dessen and I absolutely loved it! I really cannot even say anything that was bad about it. Maybe there was 1 or 2 parts in the book that I felt were a little dull, but besides that his book was a good read. As I read this story I felt that the author really knew what she was talking about and could really connect and relate to her audience.

Overall, this book was pretty good and I can't wait to read other books she has written such as "Just Listen" which is on my list of books to read.
