I flew through The Locket, finishing it in one sitting. I have always been intrigued by being able to go back in the past and change things, and the repercussions of doing so.
The Locket's main character, Katie, is easy to relate to and has a genuine voice. I felt for her as she felt guilt, regret, love and confusion. It is a very important lesson for her learning what is important to her as well as how little things can really affect everything else. I was drawn to Mitch the whole time, and I don't know if that is the intent, but I never felt much for Isaac. Mitch is more of a free spirit, he is funny and he really appreciates Katie for who she is.
The Locket is well paced, and it kept me in suspense, wondering what would happen, if she would go back to change things, and how it would all end up.
I would love to hear what you think of this book and/or my review.
