Book Description

Elise and Franklin have always been best friends. Elise has always lived in the big house with her loving Uncle and Aunt, because Elise's parents died when she was too young to remember them.  There's always been a barn behind the house with eight locked doors on the second floor.
When Elise and Franklin start middle school, things feel all wrong. Bullying. Not fitting in. Franklin suddenly seems babyish.  Then, soon after her 12th birthday, Elise receives a mysterious key left for her by her father. A key that unlocks one of the eight doors upstairs in the bar . . 


 Review:

This book was about a young girl who lost her mom when she was born and her father when she was young. She lives with her aunt and uncle. Her uncle was a carpenter and worked in the barn at their house.
This barn was 2-story, the 2nd story had 8 doors that were all locked. The week before her 12th birthday she found a key in the barn that had her name on it. It unlocked one of the doors upstairs of the barn. Every week or so, she found a key until she found all 8 keys. Each door held secrets to her life, or her parents.
The book was very good overall. It showed true feeling of what the author felt of the situation. It told about heartbreak and friendship.
