Lock & Key by Sarah Dessen

Posted in book review tagged , , , , , , at 6:05 pm by blueblazeslib

Lock & Key is about a young teenage girl named Ruby. Ruby’s mom was always on the move or with a new guy, but one day her mom went to work and didn’t come back. Ruby was left alone for weeks before the landlords came to check on how they were settling in. Now Ruby is forced to live with her sister Cora, whom she hasn’t seen since she left for college.
This book is mainly about trying to find yourself in a new way. I would recommend this book to anyone who is having a hard time in their life, and this book will help you see that it’ll all be okay in the end.

A Child Called it by Dave Pelzer

Posted in book review tagged , , , at 6:23 pm by blueblazeslib

I like the book A Child Called It because it showed how some people have to live their lives on a day to day basis.. the little boy David gets abused by his mother and and he still does all he can for her. She burns him and she beats him which shows that some people around the world have to live through this from day to day. i think this book demonstrates that people should  appreciate the life that they have because other people have it worse.

Kaeleigh and Raeanne are sixteen year old identical twins their father is a district court judge and their mother is running for Congress.  Their father loves Kaeleigh much more than he loves Raeanne, because of this he has been sexually abusing Kaeleigh since she was nine years old.  There mother isn’t around very much; she stays in Washington a lot.  Raeanne is always trying to find a way to numb the pain of not being daddy’s favorite. She will take anything she can find, pills from her father to wine from their wine cabinet.  Kaeleigh is always trying to find a way to feel something she will do anything from cutting or making herself throw up after a binge.

I liked this book because this could happen to any family, even the district court judges family or the family of a congress woman.  I like the way the Ellen Hopkins writes her books.  I recommend this book to any high school student who is looking to read a very good book with an ending that will blow your mind.
