Product Description

From the Back Cover

Before You Take a Stand ... You Got to Take a Chance. Holden Harris is an eighteen-year-old locked in a prison of autism. Despite his quiet ways and quirky behaviors, Holden is very happy and socially normal---on the inside, in a private world all his own. In reality, he is bullied at school by kids who only see that he is very different. Ella Reynolds is part of the 'in' crowd. A cheerleader and star of the high school drama production, her life seems perfect. When she catches Holden listening to her rehearse for the school play, she is drawn to him ... the way he is drawn to the music. Then, Ella makes a dramatic discovery---she and Holden were best friends as children. Frustrated by the way Holden is bullied, and horrified at the indifference of her peers, Ella decides to take a stand against the most privileged and popular kids at school. Including her boyfriend, Jake. Ella believes miracles can happen in the unlikeliest places, and that just maybe an entire community might celebrate from the sidelines. But will Holden's praying mother and the efforts of Ella and a cast of theater kids be enough to unlock the prison that contains Holden? This time, friendship, faith, and the power of a song must be strong enough to open the doors to the miracle Holden needs.

Format: Paperback
"Let my love open the door to your heart." -- Pete Townshend, 1980

"Make new friends and keep the old. One is silver and the other's gold." -- Old Children's Rhyme

"You can worry your life away with
Not knowing what each new day may bring to you
Or take each day as it goes on
Wake up to the love that flows on, around you." -- George Harrison, 1979 from "If You Believe"

Karen Kingsbury is a genius. She really is. She writes from the heart and from a Christian perspective. This book is a testament of how love and inspiration can truly bless and enrich a person's life.

Holden Harris, 18 has the dual challenges of having the gruesome name of Holden and having autism. This story, however is much broader than that of Holden and his problems with peers, bullying and difficulty in learning the Tacit Social Codes & Rules. He outwardly appears to be cheerfully oblivious to his peers' taunting, but don't be deceived by outward appearances. The boy feels very deeply, but has difficulty in knowing how to express himself in ways others will find acceptable.

"If you believe - if you believe in you
Everything you thought is possible, if you believe . . .
If you believe in me . . .
All your love's reflected back to you
When you believe." -- George Harrison

"Unlocked" also describes in real, palpably painful detail the sorrow the boy's mother feels at not knowing how to help her son. He is described as having hit all the developmental milestones with normal limits until he was a year and a half old. At that time, he became nonverbal and more inclined to pursue solitary interests as opposed to responding to people. His sensory sensitivities had become heightened and he resisted touch.

This book holds a truly inspirational message of faith and unconditional love!

Karen Kingsbury has once again, simply outdone herself!! As always, she grabs your attention from the very first sentence and holds it tight until she wraps up her story with the very last thought.

If you haven't picked up this book yet, you must. It is a must read :)

A great book. I could not put it done until I was finished the story. One of Karen's better books. I hope they make it into a movie.
