Samantha 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 truth 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?
Don’t look back dives into the idea of amnesia and the effect that it has on your life. Which is a interesting idea, if you lost your memory what would you do?
Samantha and Cassie went missing but when Sam is found, she doesn’t know her own name or where she is. She doesn’t recognize her parents, her brother, her friends, even her boyfriend. She can’t tell anyone what happened or where Cassie is because she doesn’t know. But is it really a bad thing?
Before her disappearance Samantha was a horrible person. Now is has returned a completely different person. This new Sam is getting a second chance to be a better person.
As small parts of her memories start to resurface, Sam is finding herself confused and suspicious of everyone. Even herself.She feels like she’s losing her mind and she doesn’t know what to do or who to trust. The closer she gets to finding out what happened to Cassie, the more danger she is in.
Don’t Look Back was a suspenseful read. That will pull you into a world of privilege and secret. A unique, interesting and mysterious read that I enjoyed a lot. This would be a great book for someone wanting to start reading mysterious.
