Overview

This follow-up to the critically acclaimed Don't Turn Around—which Kirkus Reviews called "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for teens, a surefire hit"—raises the stakes to their absolute limit and will leave readers begging for the exciting conclusion. Having outsmarted the sinister Project Persephone, Noa and her friend Zeke are on the run again, moving across the country, protecting runaways before they become test subjects for the Project's horrific experiments. Noa knows all too well what that feels like: Whatever was done to her has left her exhausted and scared.

Back in Boston, Peter anxiously follows Noa's movements from his computer. But he's desperate to do more, especially when he learns what the Project has done to his ex-girlfriend, Amanda.

Then, in an explosive confrontation, Noa and her team are trapped in the one place they thought was safe. It will take everything Noa and Peter have to bring down the Project. And with no one to trust and enemies hiding at every turn, they may be the only people alive who can.

Praise for DON’T TURN AROUND
Kirkus Reviews
Hackers Noa and Peter step up their undercover battles against pharmaceutical giant Pike & Dolan as danger escalates for them both (Don't Turn Around, 2012). Pike & Dolan continue Project Persephone, their secret and deadly research ostensibly to end the PEMA epidemic striking teens across the country, despite having one of their labs exposed to the authorities by the teens. Peter has stayed with his parents in Boston even after discovering their involvement with P&D, while Noa has joined the Southwest-based Persefone's Army, made up of freed subjects of P&D's labs working to liberate others before they're killed. Peter helps Noa via a secret chat group online while worrying that his ex-girlfriend Amanda might have contracted the always-fatal PEMA. Noa deals with internal problems within the army as she plans their next mission. In an attempt to find the new servers for P&D's main computers, Peter increases his surveillance of Mason, a ruthless P&D agent, only to be drawn into Mason's plotting; meanwhile, Noa grows suspicious of new recruits to her cause. Gagnon's second in the Don't Turn Around trilogy inches the tale forward with a few thrills concentrated at the volume's close, but she spends far too much time examining from every side the various love triangles and quadrangles among its characters. Here's hoping the finale will be a return to the thrills and surprises of the first installment and not more love among the hackers. Worth it to get fans from here to there; not of much interest as a stand-alone. (Thriller. 12-16)

I read the first book a month ago and I've been dying to hear what came next. I've become so attached to all of the characters, I was crushed with the outcome of all of them and I'm dying to read the next book and know the conclusion. All the characters draw you in, make you love them, and you feel like you're running away from the men too. And the constant shift of who's POV you're reading has a perfect flow to make you never want to stop reading. You think you know what'll happen but you don't. Just read it if you love exciting, thrilling, surprising, romantic, and a amazing book, you'll LOVE it

When I first read Don&rsquo;t Turn Around by author Michelle Gagnon I was pulled into an epic world filled with action, teen-hackers and an evil mega corporation that has reached the absolute lowest of the low. By the time the novel had reached its conclusion I was more than excited to get started on Don&rsquo;t Look Now which was (and I am proud to say) a thousand times better than I expected it to be. It was everything that was in Don&rsquo;t Turn Around with the stakes raised and twists that you never see coming. I&rsquo;m very impressed with the second novel in the Persephone (obviously it&rsquo;s spelled with numbers and caps-lock but I&rsquo;m honestly just too lazy to type it out repeatedly, so I hope you can settle on this) trilogy and can&rsquo;t wait to see how it reaches its conclusion.                Taking place after the events that occurred in Don&rsquo;t Turn Around, main character Noa has finally managed to outsmart and escape the wicked corporation D&amp;R. In an effort to recruit other teens and keep them safe from D&amp;R&rsquo;s experimentation, Noa invests an immense amount of effort and time to make allies, all the while partaking in the hacktivist group ALLIANCE. Meanwhile, Peter is still trying to keep up with Noa&rsquo;s from behind the screen of his computer as a hacker. The time he spent with Noa has taken its toll out on him and he&rsquo;s still trying to work out his more personal relationship with his ex-girlfriend Amanda while balancing his life out. Then things go from bad to worse as new members join Noa&rsquo;s fight against D&amp;R. The unthinkable occurs suddenly, unexpectedly, and Noa and Peter are left unsure who their enemies and allies are or if anybody truly can be trusted.                The first thing I really wanted to talk about when it came to Don&rsquo;t Look Now was the new characters that are introduced into the novel. Usually when there&rsquo;s a sequel to a kick ass novel that originally only had a few sole characters its hard to get invested or interested in the new characters getting added to the plot. Half the time I personally feel like I&rsquo;m just being bombarded which in turn makes it hard to care about what I&rsquo;m reading. Not the case in Don&rsquo;t Look Now. Every character was, to me, important in their own way and all of them were written perfectly and able to compliment any others they came to interact with.                With this also came new romance and with romance came more heartache and more feels than I could handle. Needless to say, Don&rsquo;t Look Now left me with a few ships (if you don&rsquo;t know what that word means look it up) that I could not part without. Noa is introduced to a new character who she may or may not get romantically involved with, the same goes for a newcomer character who also plays a major role in the novel. I was loving all this romance despite any pain it may have caused me internally when my heart felt like it was being stomped all over.                Apart from all the awesome characters in the novel there&rsquo;s also a new amount of action and page-turning scenes that I hadn&rsquo;t really been expecting. Gagnon just adds so many new ideas to the plot, so many new focuses and unexpected twists that I was just&mdash;not able to deal with it. I hadn&rsquo;t been expecting it and finished the novel a lot faster than I had originally intended to. Personally, I found that this only made the experience all the better and I mean come on who doesn&rsquo;t love a novel that is filled with action?                After everything that took place in Don&rsquo;t Look Now I know that there are only good things that could possibly come from the last novel in the trilogy and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. I would recommend these novels to fans of sci-fi, readers who want a fast-pace, intense read and to any readers who want a badass female protagonist. You won&rsquo;t be disappointed.

This is a series that will put the idea of a thriller in a whole other perspective. This book as well as Don&rsquo;t Look Now will take you on an adventure that will have slight effects of intense nail biting, standing on your toes, yelling madly, and possibly crying. This book would be nothing if it didn&rsquo;t create these emotions that will surely coarse through your body. Plot: The book continues from where things left off. Noa is on the run and she is on a mission to save children from the grasp of the men experimenting on them. Dangers are becoming more and more present and they are always watching. The book grabs hold of you and pulls you through the chapters Characters: We still see Peter, Amanda, Zeke and of course Noa as well as other characters from the first book as well as being introduced to new characters as the story continues. The characters create a family bond that I feel is not present in some of the families of our world. These characters are something else. They go through things that children are never expected to go through and we are able to see how strong they are and the maturity overpowers their young age. Romance: There are a couple things that prove interesting in this category. We have Noa and Zeke and we, as readers, want something to happen but life keeps getting in the way. I have decided to categorize life as a word that I learned through Urban Dictionary: Boonish. Going back&hellip;We also have Peter and Amanda who although broke up, still have a fire lit between them. Things will hopefully progress further in the next book but I have to say the ending did kill me. Ending: This is where the yelling and crying comes in. I knew this might happened and I thought it was going to happen earlier because that is how every author is. They enjoy watching the readers suffer. I have concluded that it is in their nature. It is what it is&hellip; I will keep my eyes peeled for the last book in this amazing series. I invite all readers to check out this thrilling series that will blow your mind apart chapter by chapter. Michelle Gagnon encased me in chills once again and even now when writing this review I peak over my shoulder just in fear that maybe there is someone watching my every moves. Be warned. I give it 5 bites!
