Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
Lock and Key

JessicaMae, May 15, 2011

Lock and Key by Sara Dessen is a book about how one girl, Ruby, thought she could live on her own until she had to go live with her sister after her mom had vanished. Her sister had left her to go to college and they hadn’t talked since then. “This is serious, Ruby, she said, I mean when I saw you come in like that last night, I just….. I know, I said…It’s too familiar.” This really captures how their family used to be and how they want it to change but it is going to take some time. The main theme for the book is family you will always need one to be there and support you no matter what you think. This book was a very interesting book but was kind of slow at times. It had plenty of detail and I thought it was dragged on too long. If I were to rate the book it would be 3 out of 5.

Bounce by Natasha Friend started out as a great book the first sentences said it all. “He waits till our tongues are celebrating before he lets it fly. Kids, I’m getting married. Then we are moving to Boston.” It got me hooked on the book at the first, but then it took a turn for the worse. I feel like the book just kept talking about how Evryn hates her life. I wouldn’t like my life either if I was her. She had only met her new “mom” once before her dad said that they were getting married and moving, and she wasn’t that fond of her either. Then she finds out that she is pregnant and she already has to move in with 6 brothers and sisters…….it is just too much for her to handle. I wouldn’t say this book is amazing but it isn’t that good either so I would have to give it a 3 out 5 stars.
