Summary and Genre


Don't Look Behind YouBy: Lois DuncanThriller193 pages

I enjoyed reading Don't Look Behind You. I found myself not wanting to put it down because it was so intriguing. I would recommend this book to others my age regardless of who you are, because it's a captivating storyline that keeps you wanting more.

The events that happen in this book are extreme but, I'm sure a person in similar line of work like the Corrigan's could face the same sequence of problems. For example the president and his family have to be on constant watch and guard due to his high profile position and being targeted by others. This can relate to how the Corrigan family was being targeted by the hired hit men.
