    1. A heartfelt must readOnce I started reading this I couldn't put it down. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a story about true love between teenagers. A story about family. This will have you feeling so many emotions from happiness to sadness and you need to have some tissues ready because you will need them. I usually only read a book once, I'm 47 years old and have only read one book multiple times and this will be the second one.One of the best things is I can relate to the story. I [...]

    2. The course of true love never did run smooth, and Marie Fostino’s young adult novel, The Silver Locket, tells the story of one teen girl’s unplanned pregnancy. Jenny’s life is uprooted when her dad takes a job that requires their family of seven to move to Oklahoma. As a sophomore, Jenny finds it very difficult to make new friends. She’s eventually befriended by a group of outcasts, but also faced with the moral implications of being in with the wrong crowd. Jacy, a boy who comes from a [...]

    3. When I responded to a Twitter feed in which I had the chance to read 'The Silver Locket', I was excited. Now having read it in a day on my Kindle, I was sadly disappointed.We meet Jenny, a mother, who obviously cares for her daughter a great deal. She has a strong relationship with her mother Marie, who is a typical grandmother, baking cookies. Apruptly the narrative takes a turn as we meet Janie, Jenny's daughter, who is to be frank, wasn't what I expected.And then I began to have issues with t [...]

    4. Marie Fostino’s The Silver Locket is a wonderful read. The characters draw you right into the story, which is one concerning the issues of teen pregnancy. Jenny is a young sophomore who could be any sixteen-year-old girl, one who wants to be the best person she possibly can while at the same time not really fully knowing who she is. Things take a drastic turn for Jenny when her family must move to Oklahoma because of her father’s job. She has to leave her best friend behind and finds it diff [...]

    5. Jenny's family was moving to Oklahoma. None of the kids seem to be happy about it but it meant a promotion for their dad. The move was easy, making new friends was not. Jenny just wanted to be back in her hometown with her best friend. Her mother understood but asked her to give it some time. Soon, Jenny met Jacy and his friends. They were part of what people in school considered the "bad crowd". It didn't take long for Jenny to fall in with the same bad habits they had. Drinking, smoking pot, d [...]

    6. I actually read this book in 2 days--couldn't put it down--or close it as it was on my computer "kindle".Jenny is a young teenager, uprooted from her home when her father takes a job in the city. Being the "new kid" and a sophomore isn't easy as Jenny falls into the "wrong" crowd. Marie Fostino does a great job bringing the reader into the story. I won't spoil the ending--but have a box of kleenex nearby! My only complaint was a change and switching of the spelling of a main character name mid-s [...]

    9. Love this book. Kept me so emotionalI love this book. I smiled and I cried. Jacy was the bad boy and Jenny was the sweet girl from church. She moved to a new town. Jacy had one of his friends to talk with Jenny. He had his eyes on her for awhile. Jacky introduced Jenny to smoking cigarettes, pot, alcohol, partying and sex. He didn't plan on fallen in love with her. She was just the flavor or the year. I loved this book. Would tell you more but don't want to give to much away. I could re-read it [...]

    10. WOW, what an inspirational and emotional story. The Silver Locket tells of young love and consequences. Jenny learned so many important lessons while she is growing up and choices that she has to make.I can totally understand this story. Author Marie Fostino wrote about something that happens more often than we want to admit. But, it is how it is handled and how supportive and loved we can make the person who is dealing with this feel. Always look at the blessings that can come out of these situ [...]

    11. Well, I'm not sure what I want to say about this story. It's classic teens not considering consequences from their actions. However, it is also a story to touch the heart of the reader. A story of hope and love shared between two teens. A love that, although torn apart, stays with those most important in their lives. The story is full of love, lust, lessons learned. I would highly recommend this story mostly for teens but also for adults that need to see their lives in a different light.

    12. .I believe that teens should read this because it really is true to life. . The situations they may find themselves in and the immature choices they can/will make. And They need to know *** It does only take 1 time ***. It takes you into the mind of the boy, the girl, the mom, other teenage moms and their choices. I loved all of the lessons it teaches for parents and teens. .

    13. Heart feltSuch a great story, there really is no words. It was like being on a roller coaster ride filled with emotion. I'm glad I picked this up. Don't miss out on this one, you'll fall in love too!

    14. Lifted by a blessing.Remembering to live uplifted by ones blessings is a difficult task. Life can strike some seemingly unbearable blows. Yet faith can grant us the ability to find the hope to carry on. Thankfully with each bit of joy.

    15. The Silver Locket is a story of teenage love. Jenny is the good girl getting involved with the wrong crowd. Jacy is the boy from a broken home. The result is an unplanned pregnancy and how it was dealt with. The story was very emotional and heartfelt.

    29. This story is well crafted. From the title to the storyline. This author doesn't duck issues pertaining to a very emotional topic-teen pregnancy. While reading the story I was intentionally attempting to guess the direction it was going to take. I couldn't do it. The author continued to blow me away with surprise after surprise. She delivered up personalities that were easy to hate. She didn't leave it at that. She had characters constantly evolving. At first you're disgusted and before you know [...]
