Guys, I don’t read as many contemporary thrillers as I should. I just enjoyed Megan Crewe’s The Way We Fall, and loved Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother, but I’m somewhat hesitant to take on other books (it’s that towering TBR pile of fantasy and sci-fi, i think – i feel guilty even thinking about it). Good news: a cover caught my eye, the description seems to promise contemporary thriller with a heavy dash of mystery, and I’m all in. Don’t Turn Around by Michelle Gagnon will be published by HarperCollins, and releases on August 28th, 2012.
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 threatens his life. 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.
Filled with action, suspense, and romance, this first book in a new trilogy offers readers nonstop thrills.
