Review: Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout

This book review is part of our then and now series, where we revisit books that we enjoyed in the past.

Summary

Samantha Franco is walking on the side of the road with no memory. Seriously, she has no idea who she is and how she ended up getting attacked. The police bring her to the hospital, where she is diagnosed with amnesia. Nothing helps restore her memories: not her parents, her brother or her boyfriend Del.

Things get worse when Sam starts learning about the night she went missing. Apparently, Sam was with her best friend Cassie Winchester, who is still missing.
