Synopsis: Elise and Franklin have always been best friends. Elise has always lived in the big house with her loving Uncle and Aunt, because Elise’s parents died when she was too young to remember them.  There’s always been a barn behind the house with eight locked doors on the second floor.
When Elise and Franklin start middle school, things feel all wrong. Bullying. Not fitting in. Franklin suddenly seems babyish.  Then, soon after her 12th birthday, Elise receives a mysterious key left for her by her father. A key that unlocks one of the eight doors upstairs in the barn. Elise receives the keys one by one and tries to discover why her father left her the things he did.
Review: This book is a story of two friends and how growing up can be hard.  This book is good for kids who are struggling with growing up, and the changes that middle school brings. It is not a sad book like LaFleur’s other book, Love, Aubrey, but is emotional just the same.  It can to appeal to both boys and girls because even though the story is about Elise, Franklin is a strong character.
