Secret organizations, goons with guns, unusual medical facilities, working with the head of the hacking group /ALLIANCE/. Noa never would have expected to be dealing with all of these. For a girl who’s already had a hard life after her parents’ deaths and many, many foster homes, life has just gotten even more complicated for Noa. Is there anyone she can trust or go to for help?  Noa wakes up one day on a metal medical table and can’t remember how she got there. She’s trying to get her bearings when two doctors come in. She asks them where she is and how she got there, but their answers don’t make sense. Using instinct, smarts, and strength, she manages to escape the building only to find herself on the run. She has no idea who took her or what they want with her.  Meanwhile Peter finds himself in his own confusing situation. Peter lives with his parents, but when they’re away, he does a little snooping in his dad’s office. He comes across a file he’s never seen before - AMRF - and the name “Project Persephone.” Peter is a talented computer hacker who founded his own hacking group - /ALLIANCE/. Peter knows he can probably hack his Dad’s computer, but before he gets too far, men break into the house and steal his computer.  Peter, like Noa, has no idea who these men are or what they want with his computer. If you’d like to know how Noa and Peter handled these terrifying situations and what comes next for each of them, read Michelle Gagnon’s cyber-thriller, Don’t Turn Around.   (South Carolina Young Adult Book Award, 2015,   Prepared by:  Susan Aplin, Dutch Fork High School,
