Before I used it, the key had infinite possibilities. Eleven-year-old Elise feels stuck. Her school locker-buddy squashes her lunch and laughs at her, every day. She doesn't want to go to school - and her best friend Franklin just makes things worse. Now I was ready for something to be different. Anything, really. One day Elise discovers an incredible secret. A secret that might just help her unlock her past, and take a chance on the future. I decided that tomorrow I would see what that key opened up. It had my name on it, after all...

    I enjoyed reading this book and middle school students can relate to it. The main character has to face many challenges, such as bullying and self esteem. The adventure of the key adds mystery to the story. I definitely recommend this book to others.

      I liked the book because it was really interesting and had a lot of mystery. The book starts out with a girl that lives with her aunt and uncle. She is going through an identity crisis and trying to connect with her dead mom and dad. Her dead dad gave her keys to a room in a barn and what she finds is incredible. It related to me because i've seen lots of movies with mystery.
