Transcript of Eight Keys Book Talk

By Suzanne LaFleur Eight Keys Elise’s mother died in childbirth. A year later, her father was diagnosed with cancer and given a year or two to live. Since she was three years old, Elise has been raised by her Aunt Bessie and Uncle Hugh. Every year, on her birthday, she is given a letter from her father. Just before Elise turns twelve everything changes:

Her best friend, Franklin, is suddenly too babyish to talk to and now he is not a part of her daily life.
Also, her locker partner is constantly teasing her.
Elise begins to have trouble with completing her homework and she stops doing her assignments.
Next, her aunt's sister arrives with a newborn baby and moves in with them interrupting her wonderful life with Uncle Hugh and Aunt Bessie.
Elise then begins to think her life will never be the same. One day, Elise finds a key with her name on it. This leads her to find seven additional keys. Then she discovers that the keys unlock the eight doors in her uncle's barn. This will provide her with insight to her past and also help her solve her current personal crisis. Through the keys and what they unlock, Elise is able to find herself. p. 197 "But there had been eight keys, and only seven messages, so what was the empty room for?" To discover what the empty room was for and to learn how Elise is able to overcome her challenges, I recommend you read Eight Keys by Suzanne LaFleur. "That night I collected all my messages from Dad. There where seven.
QUESTION.
BELIEVE.
CHOOSE TO LIVE, CHOOSE TO LOVE.
KNOW WHAT YOU COME FROM.
SEEK TO LEARN.
UNDERSTAND THOSE YOU LOVE.
TREASURE YOUR LIFE."
p. 196 Elise discovers the heart of family and friendship, and begins to unlock the biggest mystery of all: herself.
