LOCK AND KEY By Sarah Dessen

Posted by Ideja B. on February 25, 2018 at 1:35 PM
Lock and Key was one of the rare genre of books that I felt connected with. The imaginative descriptions of the characters allowed me to immerse into their worlds; agreeing with one, laughing with the next. Every developing second that the story took was portrayed in an admirable way, and I was able to fully visualise the scene, appearances and emotions of Ruby, Nate, Cora and Jamie. I was simply incapable of removing the book from my hand, which made me hungry for a sequel. Ruby's and Cora's personal struggles raised a sense of sympathy towards them, as they did the unimaginable; they dealt with an abusive, alcoholic parent, who later went on to abandon them. Ruby's character made me realise what a lucky position I'm in, with a secured roof over my head, daily food and water and able to attend education, and I know that many readers will agree. I always believe that the books that make us compare and realise are always the best books because they're unique but carefully crafted (while ensuring the correct language is used). It's safe to say that this will always stay a favourite of mine, and I will guarantee to keep sharing this book about, since it has a special place in my heart. I rate this book FIVE STARS!
