by Margo Kelly
Genre: YA Mystery/Thriller
Release Date: October 1st 2016
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.
The Cover ( how it ties in to the story and other interesting details about choosing it, design etc)
I am in love with the cover for UNLOCKED, and I had absolutely nothing to do with it. All credit goes to the fabulous Frank Rivera of F+W Media, who designed the beauty. The cover image is based on the opening of the story when the characters attend the local fair. If you look closely at the image, you’ll notice darker shadows that loom in the sky. The shadows and the events that took place at the fair have lingering consequences throughout the story. Also, the final book jacket is thicker than most book jackets, and it’s textured. So even the “feel” of the jacket is a bit creepy (in my humble opinion).
