Book Review: Eight Keys by Suzanne LaFleur

Eight Keys by Suzanne LaFleur.
Printed@2011      216 pages
Book Summary: I wasn't going to use the key right away. I decided. I was going to hold on to it, just for the day. For now, the key had infinite possibilities  It would be nice to have a day of infinite possibilities...
For Elise, nothing has seemed right since middle school started. She gets tortured by her locker partner and can't get her homework done. A new baby moves into her house, interrupting her wonderful life with Uncle Hugh and Aunt Bessie. Worst of all, things with her best friend, Franklin, are just not the same as thy used to be.
Then Elise discovers a secret: a mysterious key labeled with her name. Could it open one of the eight door in the barn above Uncle Hugh's workshop, the ones that have been locked as long as she can remember? Could whatever's behind those doors be for her?
On a quest to make sense of  complex gift left for her by her father before he died, Elise discovers the heart of family and friendship, and begins to unlock the biggest mystery of all: herself.
The imaginative and touching Eight Keys fulfills the enormous promise of Suzanne LaFleur's debut, the award-winning and widely hailed Love, Aubrey.

Cindy's Summary: WOW! I have to say it. That book it me hard. It is a novel that teaches you about life, about love, and most importantly yourself. I cried in this book. I did. I cried at how Elise has to suffer through school and also think about herself, her past, her family at the same time. Let's just say that she had certainly changed from the beginning to the end.

In the beginning, Elise was quiet, friendly, and but not knowing how to stand up for herself and not knowing how to love herself. By unlocking these each and individual rooms, she learned that some things are very important in life that could never change. It's so touching.

When I first started this book, I thought it was a normal book about a girl suffering through middle school. I knew about the eight keys since that was the title, but I didn't know it had such a deep, meaningful story with it. I didn't know about Elise's life and much she had actually been through. And how discovering herself can change who she is.

I'm usually a person who would enjoy romance books, if you haven't known already. Like I would so love to enjoy a romantic story and all, but I haven't realize how a book like this could totally change my thoughts of other genres.

So one important thing I found that I felt like I have to share with ya'll is the moral, the things Elise learned. It's straight out of the book, so if you feel like this is a spoiler, feel free to skip those CAPITALIZED letters coming up.
QUESTION.
BELIEVE.
CHOOSE TO LIVE, CHOOSE TO LOVE.
KNOW WHAT YOU COME FROM.
SEEK TO LEARN.
UNDERSTAND THOSE YOU LOVE.
TREASURE YOUR LIFE.

 I know those were kinda hard to skip since it stands out so much. If I saw these words on the computer, I would be like 'oh yeah. that makes sense.' But I read the book. I know the sad story behind it. Then, I'm like 'those words, man. So meaningful. So true. I need to follow these rules too.'

Yeah. So I really suggest you read this book too. Even if you like a specific genre, like me. Even though it's to teach Elise a lesson, I'm sure it will end up teaching you a lesson too.

Rate:(1-10): 9.8
So super close to ten. Heartwarming. Sad. I had to put my hands over my heart and say 'oh my god'

So like the actual cover of the book I read was this:





 And there's other covers too. I think there's like four different covers, but I like the one I put in the beginning of this review the best. It seems so sad, matching the book, a little girl at the porch.

There was the one with Elise and Franklin staring at the barn. I totally get that cover.


   And there was this one which makes Elise seem so peaceful. Thinking under a tree.

   I just wanna say. I love all the covers. Because all of them have that deep meaning behind it. <3

    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all
    site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot
    more useful than ever before.
