Info on how to enter to win a copy of Don’t Turn Around at the end of this review.

When I read the book I had no idea it was categorized as a YA. I loved it from beginning to end. I supposed I should have realized it was a YA because of the lack of bad language and explicit sex scenes. What it did have was a unique and believable plot that gripped me from the very beginning.

The heroine, sixteen year-old-Noa, wakes up on an operating table in an empty warehouse with an IV in her arm with no idea what’s going on. Her escape is heart-pounding—and it doesn’t take long for her to realize she is being relentlessly pursued. Her computer skills help keep her alive. She teams up with another computer genius, Peter, whose life is also being threatened.

Continually on the run, they begin to unravel a most horrendous secret that involves medical experimentation and foster kids. The action is totally non-stop and I couldn’t put it down.

Highly recommended for all ages.
