Reviewed by Hannah, 13

Lock and Key is a YA novel about Ruby, a 17-year old girl who thought she was doing just fine alone in the yesarahgllow house. True, the dryer was broken and there was no heat, but she only had a few more months until she turned 18. Her mom had left, but it doesn’t matter, she could take care of herself. But of course the overly nice Honeycutts saw the clothesline hanging in the kitchen. So, social services sent her away to live with her 27-year-old sister who she hasn’t seen or spoken to in 10 years. Ruby gets a job at a mall kiosk and also meets a Nate, the popular jock next door. Ruby learns how Nate’s life used to be even more troubled then hers used to be. But, how do you help someone who doesn’t want it? Lock and Key is an enthralling book for any teenager, it tells a funny but touching story, guaranteed to have you begging for more.
