Lock and Key

By Sarah Dessen

Just shy of her 18th birthday, Ruby is forced to move in with her older sister Cora — who abandoned Ruby to their alcoholic mother ten years earlier. In creating the character of Ruby, Rebecca Soler perfectly embodies a young adult woman — alternatively confident and scared, sarcastic and tentatively affectionate.


Narrated by Rebecca Soler, produced by Penguin Audio, 2008
