Contains Spoilers

In The Locket by Stacey Jay, Katie makes a huge mistake that ultimately ends her relationship with her boyfriend Isaac. Prior to this she finds a locket that belongs to her grandmother and once she starts to wish to take back her mistakes she gets to go back in time and have a second chance. However, this is not without consequences.

I thought the story had a lot of promise, but in the end it just didn't live up to my expectations. What could have been a great story just left me with more questions that weren't really answered. Whenever she changed things and went back in time something different happened. I understand the butterfly effect but how can things change so much the second time around that a new person is created (Mitch's soon to be step brother)? Not to mention the locket was never explained, the grandmother never remembered having it, how and why does it have its powers, and why does it stop working after a certain period of time?

The characters were not well developed. Issac was pretty one dimensional and Katie was completely clueless during most of the story, even her big revelation at the end seemed like it was kind of added on in a hurry. Through the whole book her priority is Issac even at the end when she throws herself at him that her big confession to Mitch held very little weight.

I give the book 2 stars. It could have been really good, but sadly it just wasn't.

My Thoughts: Whoa. Lately, I have been wondering what it would be like to go back in time and relive my mistakes, to have the opportunity to redo everything. This book did just that for me. No silly, I did not go back in time and change my life but I got to experience Kate's biggest mistake with her. Kate, is dating Isaac, popular Issac. Everyone likes Issac. He's into sports and every girls dream guy. Kate has been dating him for a few years so they are pretty much themselves around each other. Long before they started dating, they were even friends. They are also best friends with Mitch, whom they have also known their whole lives. One night, Kate goes to a party and Isaac doesn't join her. She ends up kissing Mitch and Isaac ends up finding out and breaks up with her. Kate is devastated. It was a mistake, it was a mistake, it was a mistake. Yes, I meant to write that three times, because I'm trying to convince myself and Kate, that it was a mistake.

Kate ends up wearing a necklace of her grandmas the fateful night that Isaac breaks up with her. As she stands on the side of the road, she starts to feel hot, and all of a sudden she's back to the night she kissed Mitch. She gets to change everything! She gets to change her mistake or take it back. She gets to prevent it! But at what cost? A lot of little things are different in this new scenario. Little things she tries not to pay attention too but she knows they are changing and she wonders why.

She spends more time trying to be perfect for Isaac. The kiss between Mitch never happens. What will happen between Isaac and Kate? Are Mitch and Kate just friends still?

I just have to point out my favorite scene of the whole book was at the party towards the end, where the mystery guy is singing Kate a song.

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.

3.5 stars

Stacey Jay is the first author who gave me zombies. So when I saw she had something completely different coming out, I was pretty interested. I have to say, I think I like her writing more 'contemporary with a twist' better than the whole paranormal world.

I love stories that are based on the what ifs. What if I could go back in time and change a moment where I screwed up? Right now mine would be signing the lease on the apartment I hate. But for Katie, it's going back to the time where she made the mistake of cheating on her boyfriend, Issac, with her and his best friend, Mitch.

Katie was a character that you could easily slip into her voice. My only problem with her was her boyfriend, Issac. I really didn't care for Issac at the beginning, and throughout the novel kept wondering why this chick kept changing the course of events for him. A lot of the book and moments seemed to revolve more around her and her best friend, Mitch, so in some ways I wasn't exactly able to get the chance to like him. The friendship between Mitch and Katie was very genuine and written well.

Regardless of that, I loved how Katie never knew what was going to happen when something changed. Things were sometimes a bit slow paced, but The locket took her wherever it felt the need to take her. At first it was just little things that started to change around her, but soon she noticed that by trying to change her big mistake she was alternating people's lives. And soon a domino effect happens, and one massive alternation that had my jaw dropping!

I would recommend The Locket for those that like the Groundhound Day effect or are wondering what it would be like to go back and change a mistake they've made.
