The Key and The Flame by Claire M. Caterer; reviewed by Frances D.
"In this book, an American girl, Holly, and her family move to England for a Summer. Right as she arrives at her new house, and old man appears and gives her a key. She accepts it, just to be polite, but later finds herself curious. Holly walks around in the woods and eventually finds a tree that calls to her, so she inserts the key into the bark and a whole new world appears. But, she is quickly interrupted by her new neighbor, Elliot, who demands to know what's going on. Soon, her little brother Ben also wants to be a part of the adventure, so they find themselves embarking on a journey. After going through a few trees, they end up in a world that's in trouble and needs their help. Along the way, they discover many new things about the worlds beyond their own. This was a very exciting story that I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys adventure novels." - Frances D.
