Eight Keys is a really interesting book. It starts on the first day of Sixth Grade which is the first year of High School (Year 7) I think. Elise makes an enemy whose aim is to make her life hell. Soon, though, Elise discovers a key and her past unravels into her very hands...
Eight Rooms. Eight Keys. All hidden in random places. Can Elise find them all before her patience runs thin?
This is a wonderful book. When I was asked to review it, I wasn't really sure what to expect but I accepted and when Eight Keys arrived in the post, I started reading it straight away. I didn't stop reading it until it was finished. :) This has quite a unique plot, and books that are different and unique always get good reviews from me.
The only thing I don't like about this book is the cover. It's a bit dull, and to me it doesn't portray the story inside it. The first time I looked at this cover, I thought it looked like a historical romance but actually it turned out to be a modern story of an orphaned girl who lives with her aunt and uncle and has a mystery to solve. I guess looks can be deceiving!
Overall, this book is fantastic and I really do recommend it to everyone. It has lots of different genres hidden inside it, so it suits everyone. This is probably suitable for 11+ readers. I adore this book and I'll probably re-read it again and again. :)
