Review~ Don't Turn Around by Michelle Gagnon

Sixteen-year-old Noa has been a victim of the system ever since her parents died. Now living off the grid and trusting no one, she uses her computer-hacking skills to stay safely anonymous and alone. But when she wakes up on a table in an empty warehouse with an IV in her arm and no memory of how she got there, Noa starts to wish she had someone on her side. Enter Peter Gregory. A rich kid and the leader of a hacker alliance, Peter needs people with Noa's talents on his team. Especially after a shady corporation called AMRF threatens his life in no uncertain terms. But what Noa and Peter don't realize is that Noa holds the key to a terrible secret, and there are those who'd stop at nothing to silence her for good. Fans of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will devour the story of Noa, a teen soul mate to Lisbeth Salander REVIEW: 4 STARS**** I won an ARC of Don't Turn Around by Michelle Gagnon in a giveaway for free from a blog participating in a Blog Tour- Don't Turn Around was a fantastic read with well rounded characters. I was expecting a little more out of this book, but not a let down at all. This makes for a superb set-up for book two in my opinion and hope to see some of the minor holes filled in. I will be continuing on with this series with high expectations. I can not pinpoint it but something seemed like it was missing.... You could not have asked for more as far as the characters go- 100 percent likable. There was light hints of romance (which was nice and not overdone) and lots of action. If this series heads in the right direction I think it will be a hit. The writing was well paced, smooth, and easy to follow. The book was detailed, but may be not enough in some areas. I like how the book grabs your attention from chapter one. I would recommend Don't Turn Around as a quick- exciting- mystery/thriller and I anticipate the arrival of book two. Don't turn around is a favorite for 2012 and I'm so glad to have won it- Great Addition to my Bookshelves :)
