Book Review / Don't Look Back by Jennifer L Armentrout

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 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?

This book was definitely a very creepy read and a great one to pick up in Halloween season!  This story had a great combination of suspense, drama and at some points humour.

What I loved about this story...  From the very first page this book gave me the creeps.  You see Cassie stepping out from wherever she came from with no knowledge of who she was or where she had been.  With her best friend missing while she 'walks free' it immediately made me doubt every single character in this book including Cassie.  The way that the information was given to me bit by bit throughout the story kept my attention going right to the very last page.  I had to know what happened and the fact that Cassie was discovering all these things at the same time too made it a lot more interesting.  The ending was definitely a shocker for me, I definitely did not see that coming. 

What I was not fond of with this story...  Absolutely nothing.  I loved this story from start to finish.
