Eight Keys by Suzanne LaFleur
Eight Keys is an extremely realistic depiction of sixth grade and how schools tend to handle cases of bullying and harassment. Sixth grade is a huge transition year where everyone is trying to figure out who they are, where they belong, and how to fit in. I loved to watch Elise's development from being scared, embarrassed, and insecure to being confident and able to stand up for herself.
Elise's journey of self discovery was beautiful, and I loved the vast support system of her family helping her though these tough times. Elise was far from perfect but lovely all the same. Elise felt very depressed at times, and I loved witnessing her evolve and find happiness. This book is extremely inspirational and shares the importance of standing up for yourself and loving who you are. Every girl should read this sweet story.
I highly recommend this book, and I am looking forward to reading another book of the author's, Love, Aubrey.
