Don't Turn Around is a cyber-thriller with an interesting premise that draws the reader in from page one. Initially, it is unclear how Noa's and Peter's stories tie together, which adds to the suspense. Noa is a bright girl who did not fare well in the foster care system, suffering abuse at the hands of adults and other foster kids. She invents a fictional foster family to fool social services, but is abducted because no one would notice she was gone. Peter is also a brainy teen who founded a computer "hacktivist" group that targets bullies, sexual predators, and corporations that are cruel to animals. Together, they discover that Noa is the victim of a corporation that is using human test subjects to develop a cure for a deadly disease. Foster children have been targeted for this purpose because they frequently run away and are difficult to track. The story involves some violence, and language can be strong but is infrequent (d-mned, h-ll, b-stard, f--k, a-shole, b-tch, bullsh-t). Fans of thrillers will thoroughly enjoy Don't Turn Around, but make sure to have some time set aside because this one is difficult to put down.
