Blog Tour: Unlocked by Margo Kelly

by Margo Kelly
Genre: YA Mystery/Thriller
Release Date: October 1st 2016
Merit Press


A provocative thriller involving hypnosis, mystery, love, and friendship!

Someone has been moving the stuffed pink elephant in Hannah's room. She thinks. And ants crawl over her hands, across the steering wheel, all the time. Don't they? They're what made her crash the car on the way home from the fair, and she wouldn't have freaked out, wouldn't have caused her friend's death, for no reason. But she doesn't know if a person is messing with her, if the paranormal is messing with her--or if she's just going psychotic like her dad before her.

When her friends bail, Hannah is left floundering. Not even her boyfriend Manny believes her, and new girl Chelsea is practically replacing her at school. Only artsy outsider and self-proclaimed occult expert, Plug, agrees to help Hannah find out the truth about hypnosis and demons, and even he can't help Hannah reclaim her mind from whatever's taking over. She'll have to do that herself if she wants to save her friends, her mom and herself.

My Thoughts

This book starts off with Hannah and her friends going to the fair and them going to a hypnotist show.  Her and her friends participate in being hypnotized.  Hannah believes she was never hypnotized only faking it to make it look real.  On her way home she was driving her boyfriend Manny, best friend Lily and her best friends boyfriend Jordan home.  She started seeing ants run across her hands and she freaks out and wrecks her car and ends up killing Jordan and putting Manny and Lily in the hospital.

She feels super guilty about everything.  Then when she goes to school another girl, Chelsea starts blaming her and making fun of her.  Hannah then goes through times where she does something but she doesn't remember every doing it. Throughout the rest of the book you figure out what is happening to her.

I really enjoyed this book and it kept me guessing till the end.  Throughout the book it was making me crazy trying to figure out what was actually going on and I loved it.  This book has a lot of good twists in it.  And I loved the ending, such a great mystery all the way to the end!  

I received a copy from Merit Press Publishing for an honest review.
