Plot Summary: April knows her mom is coming back for her. If only she could figure out what the key around her neck leads to. April thinks it may have something to do with the Winterbornes, the most famous and richest family around, after seeing how her key matched the crest in the museum. Determined to figure it out, she sneaks into the museum and tries the key with no luck, and accidentally knocks over the candelabra she was using for light. Somehow, she's dragged out, the key is returned to her neck, and she wakes up in the hospital. Ms. Nelson is there waiting for her, and convinces April to come with her to Winterborne, as if April has any other options. On the way, they stop and get Violet and Tim, too. Once they're in the ginormous castle, April tries to make a plan for how to solve the mystery of the key. Only every time she wanders around by herself, she feels someone else there. Who could it be? Will Gabriel Winterborne ever return home after being missing for 10 years?

Setting: stormy coastline

Characters:
April - orphan
Ms. Nelson - in charge of the Winterborne Estate, loving, warm and kind, makes it clear she hates liars
Tim - comes with Violet to Winterborne when he becomes protective of Violet
Violet - youngest and most naive
Sadie- already was living at Winterborne, father was the tutor, inventor although most fail

Smithers - the butler, helpful and answers questions
Evert Winterborne - Gabriel's uncle, lives in the mini mansion a short distance away

Recurring Themes: belonging, family, friendship, orphan, determination, independence, death

Controversial Issues: the characters are in quite a few life or death situations

Personal Thoughts: This book was full of action and adventure and was well written with an interesting plot and great characters. The suspense made me read it a little too fast, not always picking up on details until they were better explained later. I think this book would be too stressful and too scary for younger than 5th grade.

Genre: unsure! takes place in present day with drones, and it has the fantasy feel, as if it's alternative world, yet it's not. But it certainly doesn't read like realistic fiction.

Pacing: fast
Characters: decently well developed
Frame: easy to understand

When April's mother left her at the orphanage, the only thing she gave her was a mysterious key, and then told her that she would be back soon. April believed her mother and has not given up hope that she will one day show up to take her home. In the meantime, April has been in 12 different homes in 10 years, but after setting fire to a museum when she broke in after hours to try to open a small box with her key, Isabella Nelson takes April to Winterborne House. Along with Tim and Violet who are also going to Winterborne House, they arrive to find an energetic girl named Sadie who already lives there. Winterborne House is strange with many secrets, and April believes it has a connection with the key her mother gave her 10 years before.
In her debut middle grade novel, Ally Carter has taken the elements that make her YA books so enjoyable and applied them to this book. The characters are quirky and fun, but they all have secrets of their own. The mystery of the Winterborne Home leads to other questions about who is the last surviving member of the Winterborne family and what does April's mysterious key unlock. The story includes several sequences of fast-paced action and suspense. Overall, this is a very good middle grade novel and the beginning of a promising series. ( )

Ally Carter has again crafted an adventure I love. I grew up with her other spy books ([b:Heist Society|9948788|Heist Society (Heist Society, #1)|Ally Carter|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1347798403l/9948788._SX50_.jpg|6767235] and [b:I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You|6943881|I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls, #1)|Ally Carter|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/book/50x75-a91bf249278a81aabab721ef782c4a74.png|1008494]) but didn't expect to enjoy this middle-grade book as much as I did. The simple way the different children were introduced was so clever and helped me get to know them really quickly. I also loved all of Sophie's inventions, super funny. ( )

A fun and charming middle-grade book that could appeal to readers of all ages. It had everything I love about middle-grade books- adventure, mystery, found families, and friendships. There is just enough of a surprise at the end to leave the series open for a sequel. ( )

In her middle grade debut, Carter (Not If I Save You First) offers up mystery, intrigue, and swashbuckling action in a rollicking story of long-lost secrets and found family.

She knew how to walk around in white pants without getting even a speck of mud on them. Clearly, on some level, this woman was a genius, and April wanted to apprentice in her ways.
