The Locket

Stacey Jay, Razorbill, $8.99 trade paper (288p) ISBN 978-1-59514-335-8
Katie is in love with her longtime boyfriend, Isaac, and hopes they'll be together forever. But one night, on a whim, she kisses their mutual friend, Mitch; when Isaac finds out about the betrayal, he breaks up with Katie on her 17th birthday, abandoning her roadside. Katie is heartbroken and wishes she could erase what happened with Mitch. Luckily, she gets the chance: Katie finds a mysterious locket belonging to her grandmother that allows her to travel back in time, relive that night, and take back the kiss, so she and Isaac can live happily ever after. At first, Katie is overjoyed to have her life back to normal, but as Isaac becomes increasingly preoccupied with basketball, frequently standing her up, Katie wonders if sometimes what feels like a mistake is really a blessing in disguise. Though the paranormal element remains unexplained and events end predictably, Jay (You Are So Undead to Me) effectively builds tension while conveying Katie's slow acceptance of how even feelings that seem set in stone can unexpectedly change. Ages 12–up. (Feb.)
