I am eighteen years old now, but I remember reading this book one summer when I was younger and it was the first book that I've ever read in one sitting. The greatest book I have ever read still to this day. I was hooked. I could not put this book down. It is a real page turner. I promise you will not be disappointed by this book.

This book is awsome. i recommended it to all of my friends. Its great right from the start too. It kinda goes through a little bit of a rough patch in the middle, but the end makes up for that majorly. The action in the last 50 or so pages is amazing. I couldn't put it down

It took me a while getting ovver her book summer of fear itt was so good.I love lois because she makes it seem like she went through this in real life. She puts so much thought into her book where you can see a vidual picture in you head. All I have to say is well done Mrs. Lois Duncan and I cant wait to read the rest of your books THANK YOU

I choose  “don’t look behind you” I choose this book because it sounded like a good book but it was a ok book because to me it was sort of confusing to me and this isn't the best book I have read. One reason I don’t like is that it was confusing to me need, I sort of understand it when I finished I know that you might be thinking that I might suck at reading but I like reading mystery, adventure, and more. Then something that I dislike is the beginning because to me it was all confusing. I think that you should read it  if you are in mystery and it was not exactly turn page action but you should read it.

April Corrigan is an average popular teenage girl. She has many friends, an amazingly handsome boyfriend, she is great at tennis. You could say she has a perfect life. Until she finds out she has to leave it all behind. Her family must go into the Federal Witness Security Program. She has to leave and live somewhere else living as some other person who she does not want to be. She can’t tell anyone about this new life. All she wants is to be with her boyfriend and be happy. Unfortunately she can’t do that. She can’t leave behind this perfect live that she has in Virginia. She also doesn’t want to get killed. Could her new life be better than the life that she had before? Does she have to live this way forever?

The book Don’t look behind you by Lois Duncan is a great novel that is full of suspense. April is a teen girl that’s life seems to be going great, until her world gets turned upside down. April’s family is forced to enter the Federal Witness Security because of the danger her family was put in after her dad’s testimony. Are April and her family safe? Read the book to find out! Lois Duncan is an amazing writer. The book has many strengths, like the suspense, thrills and chills you get while reading. For instance, the novel states, “ with my arms stretched high in the air, I turned the racket on it edge and brought it slicing down with all my strength directly into the face of the man in front of me.” This illustrates one the many suspenseful moments in Don’t look behind you. This novel also has many weaknesses, such as it takes too long to get to the point and it had a terrible ending. For instance, the novel states. “That evening, when I got home, I hung up my prism. This illustrates the ending doesn’t reveal any moments that you were waiting for while you were reading. The book is the best in my opinion. The book offers many moments where you wanted to stop reading but you couldn’t because you needed to know more. The book itself was fantastic it had many moments when you thought you could guess what happened but you can’t. Which makes me love the book because I like irony. For instance, The novel states “you think that man may have gotten into our motel room? “ This shows that what happen next will surprise you. This book review tells all the many reasons why I love this book and why you should read it.
