Lock & Key
"What's worse: No food or you?"
Ruby- Ruby is the main character of this book. Her abusive mother has left her and she is left in a house that violates many health code restrictions (such as no running water, no heat). Ruby is left to fend for herself. Her abandonment causes her to rely on herself and she doesn’t trust people. When she is found out by the authorities, she is sent to live with her sister, Cora. Ruby must switch schools and live in a classy home. She learns to accept her past and to get to know people. I think Ruby is very courageous because she learns to except others opinions, advice, help, and trust. She is now able to have relationships with people. After some time, Ruby starts a totally new chapter in her life.
