Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9-- Undoubtedly a master of suspense, Duncan has written a spellbinding tale of uniquely contemporary horror. Seventeen-year-old April Corrigan's life ends abruptly when she learns that her airline executive father has been working secretly undercover for the FBI. Now his testimony against a notorious drug dealer has placed the whole family in danger, and April and her family are quickly relocated under the Federal Witness Security Program. What begins as a temporary measure soon must become a way of life. April, an ace tennis player, has to stop playing tennis; her mother must give up a lucrative career as a children's author; their names are changed; and April's naive attempt to communicate with her boyfriend causes the violent death of an agent. The entire book is fast-paced and enthralling, but the conclusion will have readers on the edge of their chairs. April and her grandmother get involved a high-speed cross-country chase which culminates in the death of a hit man. Although some readers will not be able to imagine having to sever completely all ties with their past, they won't be able to put this book down. Don't Look Behind You is filled with booktalk potential. --Jeanette Larson, Mesquite Public Library, Tex.

The book Killing Mr. Griffith was a good book. It entertained me most of the time, and I am a very hard person to keep entertained. I read this book about seven or eight months ago. The highschool I went to had a program that was called AR Testing. This program required very kid in the school to read atleast two book severy nine weeks and then take test on them. You have to pass your test with atleast an eithy percent to earn credit for a portion of your English class that you are taking. So with all this time I had to read, I kept myself interested by reading alot of Luis Duncan books, and Don't look behind you was one of them.
Dont look behind you was like another version of The movie and the book, I know what you did last summer. Some kids go take a vacation and They just blew the incident off and went on acting like nothing had happened. They had no idea what they had gotten themseleves into. Little did they know, what they had hit would come back to get revenge.
I recommend this book because it's interesting.

Don't Look Behind You, is one of the best Lois Duncan novels' I have ever read. It tells you the story of April who is forced to leave her life, and start a new one. She must leave her straight-A's, tennis team, great friends, and her wonderful boyfriend.
Of course being a teenager April makes everything alot harder then it should be. Constantly at the beginning she complains about how she needs to call her boyfriend. Once realizing the trouble they are in she starts to settle down. Throughout the book April seems to become more and more mature. She begins to understand what kind of situation they are in.
As the book goes on you learn more and more about how April and her family are dealing with thier situation. You also learn how they are dealing with thier new life-style.
The family has to catch small flaws like calling Valerie (april's new name), April because of the man out to kill them. April has begun to blame her dad for all of this when it really isn't his fault. He had no clue what he was getting into, or that it would affect his family in this way.
This book is a great story of a family's survival through hard times.

A Review by Tiera
In a family of four, George, Liz, Bram, and April live a normal life. But when their father goes to court for smuggling drugs, and almost gets shot. They all must go into hiding leaving the rest of their family, friends, and school behind. Soon someone finds them and tries to hurt them. So they decide to go into the witness protection program and start a new life somewhere safe. But it doesn't turn out the way they thought it would!
I like how this book keeps you thinking, what is going to happen next. It leads up to the high point really clear and with tons of excitement, when the hit man finds out where the family is living. The author describes the characters actions and thoughts really well. Almost as if you could see and hear the person standing right in front of you. This book is very realistic, because while reading it I felt like I was actually in the story with them. The pace of this book is very steady, and it made me want to keep on reading it and not stop.
I recommend this book to people who like a good mystery-horror with a lot of suspense. This book will easily be enjoyed by anyone.

Don't Look Behind You is about a girl named April and her family who has to go under the Witness Protection Program to avoid hitmen who are hunting them down. April then has to adjust to her new life, but has a difficult time letting go of her past. In the book, you'll see how April and her family adapt to the changes going on around them and if April can pull through for the safety of her family.
Don't Look Behind You is one of the most suspenseful stories I've read in awhile. It now stands as my most favorite Lois Duncan book. The plot is great and I loved how Duncan orders the events that happen in the story. However, there are one or two things I didn't like very much. I always find in Duncan's books that I don't agree with the characters, so with this book it is no different. Perhaps it's because I've never had to face the challenges these characters have to face, but I couldn't help but feel that the girl, April, made some decisions that ended up with very bad consequences that could've been easily avoided if she had just thought things through enough. Other than that, I thought the book was simply awesome. I would definitely recommend this book especially to people who enjoy just heart stopping action.
