Overview

Unlocked by Margo Kelly

Hannah is losing it. Everything. Her friends, her life, and probably her mind. Bugs crawling over her hands made her wreck the car and cause her friend's death, but...were the bugs even real? Is someone moving Hannah's things around, or is she imagining it? Why does her brain feels as though she's not controlling it? She's probably headed for a useless life in and out of the locked ward, like her dad. In desperation, she reaches out when the school's self-proclaimed "occult" expert offers to help, and, through this supposedly weird kid, Hannah discovers shocking news that could mean she really is going crazy, or that someone misusing a terrible power.

Riveting page-turner. UNLOCKED is a paranormal, suspense, Romance. Author Margo Kelly had me guessing until the end.

Hannah has the perfect boyfriend, first kiss, and friends, but after a hypnotist show her mind starts to break into fragmented pieces. The suspense of what's destroying her makes it hard to put down. Great read!

This was better then a 4 star but not good enough for a 5 star review. Even though I like reading about the occult, I felt the demon parts could have been left out and it still would have been just as good of a story. A few minor slow parts but overall a really good read.

Three Pieces of Advice if You’re Thinking about Reading “Unlocked”... Advice 1: Don’t start this book unless you have a big chunk of time at your disposal because you won’t be able to put it down. Advice 2: Don’t read this book, then – as I did – go to the gym and notice an ant crawling across the floor while you’re doing your stretching, and wonder how in the world it got up to the second floor, and why a few seconds later an ant (the same or another) is crawling on your hand. Advice 3: Don’t read this book unless you like heroines who may or may not be crazy, and may or may not be persecuted by supernatural forces, but who definitely do in the end take charge of their own lives and solve their own problems, without wimping out and relying on boyfriend, or mom, or the authorities.

After a seemingly harmless encounter with a hypnotist, Hannah starts to feel like she is losing her grip on reality. Strange things are happening, she’s seeing things that simply can’t be real, and people she loves are getting hurt. It feels like she is somehow responsible and the people she knows the best are starting to turn on her. Is she really losing her mind or is something more sinister going on? The premise of this book was pretty unusual and quite creative. The idea that being hypnotized might unlock your subconscious mind in a way that allows “others” to control you, some of those others being human, and perhaps some less than, all without you being fully aware? Kind of terrifying right? And is that kind of intrusion something we can fight off? And then there is the whole theme of mental illness and how it impacts our lives and the lives of others, how people we trust and love treat us when it’s clear we are starting to unravel. When things are difficult, we learn a lot about the people we surround ourselves with, about their dedication and loyalty to us, how truly unconditional their love is. And those hard times also open us up to relationships that we didn’t value as much before, perhaps shedding light on things we weren’t able to see previously. Don’t get me wrong. This book isn’t all seriousness. At heart, it’s a quasi-paranormal YA mystery/suspense novel that is highly entertaining. But, it does touch on what I mentioned above, and that is a positive thing. While I normally LOVE paranormal stuff, it felt like an afterthought in this story. There wasn’t a deep enough dive into that element of the story, so it came off feeling irrelevant and superficial. I can see where it could have gone, but it never really got there, so it was really more of a distraction and didn’t lend much to the overall story. Aside from that, it was a great book. Note: I received this book from the publisher via Edelweiss.
