Hello YABC!

I’m excited to be here today to share the cover for UNLOCKED! I am in love with the ethereal quality captured on the cover, because it fits the underlying spookiness and unknown elements of the story so well. I can hardly wait for everyone to read this one!! I hope you’ll stay up late into the night--with all the lights on--trying to figure out what is happening to Hannah, the main character, in UNLOCKED! Yay for books.

~Happy reading, Margo Kelly (UNLOCKED, Merit Press)

About the Book

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.

I'm so excited for this book! Margo is one of my favorite authors, and I always love a good mystery...especially when insanity is involved. The cover looks great and makes me even more excited. October 1st couldn't come any sooner!

I love a unreliable narrator and I can't wait to see if there is something paranormal going on or if she is just crazy! The cover is perfect, kind of hazy and unreal!

Beautiful cover - the unfocused areas make it so interesting. There's a carnival in our small town this week, and my kids want to go. I'll have to wait to read this until after we go, so I'm not scared!

I really like the book cover off Unlocked. It looks mysterious and surreal. I wanted to win this book for my granddaughter, but after reading the synopsis I believe that I will be reading the book also

The description makes me want to read to find out what is really wrong with her. I wonder if she has a mental illness or if it will go in a paranormal direction. Intriguing!

The cover reminds me of the Great Gatsby but the plot is more than unique. The plot itself is stunning.
