This month we are revisiting some of our favorite books from the past year, and checking out the next chapter in a month we’re calling “Take 2”  We start out with Locke and Key Vol 2 - Head Games.

The three Locke children—survivors of a horrific home invasion that claimed their father—have just begun to rebuild their lives when little Bode discovers a key with incredible power. Q: What if overcoming your fears, mastering any skill, learning any art was as simple as turning a key?
