Being home during this crazy time has me trying to get a lot of reading done and cross books off my ever growing tbr list. The latest book I have finished is Dorothy and the Glass Key. I wrote about this way last year with an author q&a, but I just got around to crossing it off my list.
The book is really is interesting and has a supernatural aspect to it. Dorothy is a 14 year old girl and the year is 1986. After tragedy strikes and her mother is killed, Dorothy and her father relocate from Georgia to Floria to stay with her uncle on the family farm. Resentful of her father and wanting to escape, Dorothy comes across a peculiar glass key. The key leads her to another world where she meets two other boys, from different years! As the story of Dorothy and the two boys plays out, the readers also follow a parallel story taking place 34 years later where a woman named Ellen is an administrator at a rehab facility and she is trying to figure out why a young patient named Dorothy has been in a coma-like condition all these years. Mysterious!
I don’t want to give too much away, but through the story you learn what the other world is, why Dorothy and these two other boys are chosen to go to this other world/why the keys call to them, etc. There is also a big twist at the end, which I liked but it was a little confusing to follow and I felt like it was so much information thrown at me at once, with so few pages left to the story. I think I needed a little more time/story to really understand everything.
Overall, I enjoyed the story and found it to be a pretty quick read.
