The Locket by Stacey Jay

On her seventeenth birthday, Katie discovers a locket and decides to wear it for good luck. But when her boyfriend Isaac finds out she cheated on him-- with their mutual best friend Mitch, no less--he dumps her, leaving her devastated. And then a miracle happens. The locket burns on Katie's chest and she feels herself going back two weeks in time, to the night she cheated with Mitch. At first, Kate is delighted to be a better girlfriend to Isaac this time around. But as other aspects of her life become inexplicably altered, she realizes that changing the past may have had a dangerous effect on her present. Can she make things right before the locket destroys everything--and every
one--she loves?

Before reading The Locket, I had never read anything written by Stacey Jay- and from what I've read of her now, she's one awesome author. The Locket was a fast paced novel that kept me guessing. I love how Jay put a dramatic spin on time travel.
This book had a slow and confusing start, but it blossomed into something that I ended up really loving. The Locket had a perfect pace set to it. My god, this book made me think. It made me think about do-overs and the past and about what would happen if everybody had second chances.
Stacey Jay crafted a well-written novel that will leave readers thinking.

I actually enjoyed reading this book. I thought it was sincere and did it in a way that it will help the more youthful generation learn that mistakes are not meant to last.

I thought the story had lots of promise, but in the finish it didn't live up to my expectations. What might have been a great story left me with more questions that weren't answered.
