Goodreads Synoposis :

Don't Look BackSamantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend. 

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash. 

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

My Thoughts:

To say I am a huge fan of Jennifer’s is a gigantic understatement. I adore whatever she writes and I have read all her books. Don’t Look Back is a fantastic standalone. This thriller is edgy and captivating and was genuinely creepy.
Sam’s story is a scary one. To not know who you are or what happened to you has got to be one of the scariest things a person can go through.
I really enjoyed her road to self discovery. To go from being the Queen Bitch of her high school to not being able to remember her own name has sent Sam’s world upside down.
Her quest for answers on not only her disappearance, but to find out the truth for her best friend leads Sam down a dark and dangerous road that no one expects.
To say that I was shocked as hell by the ending is putting it mildly. Jen has a great way of leaving you breathless. I was not anticipating this ending AT All.
Jen is a remarkable writer with a fantastic imagination and she weaves her webs with the ability of a master storyteller.
Don’t Look Back will leave you wanting more even when the story is long over.
