      I liked the book overall I really like LaFleur s style with YA realistic fiction However, I am very disappointed in the way the bullying situation was handled in this book Elise tried telling two adults at school and her own guardians, to no avail I hate that one of the messages sent in this book is when you go to an adult with an issue they will not listen to you That is the wrong message All children need to know they have an advocate in any adult when it comes to bullying Adults should be the [...]

      Eight Keys is a truly beautiful book I adore everything about the cover, that it s a hardback without being too big to carry around, and, of course, the story Eight Keys is an emotional, moving children s book about a 12 year old girl s realistic experience of life.The main themes in this book are love, family, friendship, and bullying Elise, our main character, is far from perfect but the reader cannot help but empathise and encourage her throughout her character development Eight Keys explores [...]

      A relatively sweet read for younger kids For a while I was disappointed in the attitude of the main character but she turns out ok There was one point where her aunt tells her to never doubt a mother s love for a child and that sort of got me thinking We say that a lot, don t we Because it sounds nice and it should be true But it isn t really true Not always And not nearly as often as it should be.

      i love this book so much it has so much detail, and it explains everything so well i would recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery books.

      Elise has just started middle school and things couldn t be worst Known for the scabs that covered her legs on the first day, Elise has been singled out by her locker mate, who teases Elise for being a baby Elise s best friend Franklin just makes everything worst, not knowing that there are certain things that cool sixth graders don t talk about at school like playing knights Elise lives with her aunt and uncle in an old farmhouse, her parents both having died when she was a baby Adjusting to a [...]

      Elise is starting at middle school Things start off badly as she is covered in scabs from a game of knights gone bad and becomes the target of her locker mate Amanda By not doing her homework, Elise antagonizes her teachers and she pushes away her best friend because his childishness is embarrassing to her Thanks to her loving aunt and uncle, and mysterious notes and keys left by her dead father, she learns to be a butter person.Having a daughter who just started middle school, I was excited to [...]

    7. Noella says:

      Eight Keys is a great story about self discovery There were so many things about this novel that reminded me of primary school, so the author did a really good job of portraying that period in time of a child s life when it felt like doing homework, being cool and liked and fitting in were a big deal.I didn t like Elise much She was easy to relate to but not very likeable I felt Franklin was underdeveloped because it was hard to imagine that he was unaware of what people thought of him or how he [...]

      Boring Unrelatable Main character pissed me off from start to finish.

    9. Lo says:

      Based on my opinion of Love, Aubrey and the summary of this one, I decided to read this book.I think I would ve enjoyed it a little better about three years ago Elise, an orphan, has spent her life playing Pretend with her best friend Franklin and living without any parents When she gets to six grade, her locker buddy Amanda squishes her lunch everyday I know bullying is a big problem in a lot of schools, but Elise didn t even fight back She didn t even attempt to And when she tried telling a te [...]

    11. Chris says:

      This is such a wonderful book for tweens It s about a young girl s journey of self discovery and beautifully done Discussion of interesting topics such as entering middle school, bullying, self esteem I would definitely recommend it for that age group, or people interacting with them.

    12. Cathy says:

      I d give this 3.5 if I could I liked the characters and I LOVED what the dad did for his daughter I loved her exploration into herself and her family s past I loved her self realizations I cried through most of the second half of the book It is a great read for middle schoolers I saw myself at that age a lot in Elise That need to be accepted, and the unkind things that we do to others in order to be accepted is a shared experience I have with Elise at that age and many middle schoolers now She b [...]

    13. Jen says:

      The bullying subject matter was difficult to read Having gone through being bullied, it wasn t easy to kind of re live Though I hear they have no tolerancy rules now, so one bully might be easier to vanquish now Not a bad book, but LOTS of drama With friends, with bullies, with dead parents, it almost seemed like too much for the poor MC Not a bad book, but it could be difficult for a child who is being bullied to read 3 solid stars.

    14. Giteeka says:

      Yeah so I finished this book a long time ago, but I never updated that I was done Oops Anyway, I really liked how it was a mystery, but it was also not really like a murder mystery There was suspense, but not like the scary type I would have liked it a little bit I think, if some of the keys were not as rushed The first key took forever to get to Elise, but the rest of the keys seemed rushed The book was super short, so it might not have been as rushed if it was longer.

    15. Danielle says:

      I liked parts of this book I liked Elise s family and I liked the setting I liked that she had a friendship with her Dad s best buddy I even liked Franklin, as young as he seemed He was funny and I think I would totally want to be his friend I liked that her dad made plans to have things for her after he passed away that was really sweet Unfortunately, I didn t must care for Elise.First of all, the middle school characters all seemed way too young The words they used reminded me of how the third [...]

      I fell in love with this book I ve read some of the comments where people didn t like how the main character behaved for most of the book, but I think that was the point of the book Here is Elise, turning 12, entering a big new middle school with a swarm of new kids feeding into it from other schools Here s her best friend Franklin who is a geek and totally proud of it On the first day of school he embarrasses her and then it just goes downhill from there Elise s parents have been dead for a lon [...]

      I may have liked this if I had read it as a young girl I know the mystery of the keys and the locked doors would have intrigued me As it was, it was fine, but I didn t love it.Even though I understood most of what she was feeling, Elise made it pretty tough for me to keep liking her She was mean to Franklin, let Amanda treat her like garbage sorry, but I would ve been telling the teacher or principal or somebody every single day she wrecked my lunch , and she never did her homework just because [...]

      There is this girl name, Elise She was playing with her friend Franklin, her best friend, but as middle school came, everything wasn t the same between them Anyways, she lives with her Uncle and Auntie, her parents died When she was in the house, she went to her father s office and found 8 different keys in each room, she explored the 7 doors, but one thing that was mysterious is the 8th door, the 8th door is a secret room that she and her Uncle and Auntie didn t know She then explored the room [...]

    19. Lejla says:

      Ok I just don t get this story It feels too much like the book Jeremy fink and the meaning of life except really bad The girl doesn t even have to look for the keys they just appear.And the main character was also annoying She was a total to everyone and she was a dead beat in school and when all the doors were open everyone suddenly forgave her totally unrealistic Really bad story

    20. Rachel Peden says:

      My thoughts about this book are that this book is good for all ages it gives a mystery and a good background story This is a very good book and I definitely reomemend it.

      I loved the book a lot

    22. Audrey Williamson says:

      Overall I think 8 Keys was a good book but could have been a little interesting I thought it was a bit boring at times 8 keys was about a girl named Elise who lost her mom from her being born and her dad to cancer Even though this happened Elise still chooses to be happy about the whole situation and makes the best of it In this book Elise tells her story of how she found the 8 keys and what they lead to But that s not it, with all this happening Elise is having trouble at school with a bully F [...]

      Second time reading this book I liked it Elise was a brat, just like the author meant her to be But she changed, and she did a good job, just like the author meant it to be Characters Elise, Uncle Hugh, Aunt Bessie, Franklin, Caroline, Annie and baby Ava All very real, all very alive, and there 4 stars, because I didn t love Elise at the beginning Plot The plot was really well worked out It progressed and developed slowly through the whole book and finished well The eight keys and the gift that [...]

    24. Ashley says:

      I absolutely loved this book It was written very well and also written in good detail I m going to write the cons first and then the pros The cons of this book is that there could have been a little detail in how she found the keys, where she found them, and when she found them The pros of this book is that it is very well written and it gives some detail about her past so you actually understand what happened to her parents I would say this book is for all ages so there s not any offensive par [...]

    28. SJH (A Dream of Books) says:

      Eight Keys is the first book I ve read by Suzanne LaFleur but it certainly won t be the last I d heard fantastic things about LaFleur s debut novel Love, Aubrey so I was really excited to read her second book which sounded wonderfully intriguing.Aimed at a slightly younger teen audience, Eight Keys absolutely captured my heart It was a quick read but it s one that stayed with me long after reading the final page Some bits had me absolutely sobbing and I found the story incredibly moving and touc [...]
