Hannah was living a perfect life. Perfect grades, perfect friends, the perfect boyfriend. Until they all went to the carnival and participate in a hypnosis act. Everything in her life went under.
After the tragic car accident that took the life of her best friend’s boyfriend, and both her best friend and boyfriend in the ICU, Hannah’s life has never been the same again. She is starting to see and hear things others don’t, she is doing things that she wasn’t aware of or can’t remember she was doing and she is freakishly afraid that she might end up like her crazy father.
“Plug had drawn a picture of the damn,
Inspired by something in the backroom,
his dad was a necromancer. What was I even doing here?”
― Unlocked, Margo Kelly
But why is someone going in and out of her bedroom, putting things out of place, and ordering her around? Is Hannah really seeing the unknown or is she being manipulated?
Unlocked by Kelly Margo is absolutely CRAZY! Ironically, I’ve been so curious about hypnosis lately and then this book landed on my “to review list”. At first, I got to predict who was traumatizing Hannah and I thought that was it for this book. Since it was so predictable I might as well drop it, but then I got really compelled by the story as I read.
Hannah is a strong character, I really admire her for being persistent in “still” living a normal life after what had happened to her and what was happening to her.
Plug (a.k.a Eugene yes, let’s use that as his a.k.a.) is the boy who helps Hannah get through all the craziness, I don’t hate him but I don’t actually like him either. Maybe because I find him a bit more on the occult phenomenon without having a basis. It just looks like he is a fanatic and was trying to experiment on Hannah, kinda thing. All in all, he was okay.
What I like about this book is that, even though I kinda predicted who’s who, the events in this book aren’t really what you typically expect them to be, I wanted to know more about what will happen and how they can unlock the mystery of what really is happening around Hannah.
Although I find their investigative procedure very convenient, like a bunch of friends who have this webcam program and the other one was a like private investigator. I liked how they turned out to solve the case in the end.
If you like mystery, a bit of a thrill then this book is definitely for you!
