Revue de presse
Armentrout (the Covenant series) immerses readers in the wildly altered world of 17-year-old Samantha who, upon awakening in a hospital with dehydration, a concussion, and extreme shock, remembers nothing about her life. She is told that she was found in the state forest after being missing for four days and that her best friend Cassie is still missing. Quickly learning that she was both popular and despised at school, Samantha is sickened by her so-called friends and boyfriend, as well as disturbed by the tension between her parents; she attempts to make amends with those she has betrayed and develops a crush on someone she never gave the time of day to before. When Samantha begins to receive notes that urge her to distance herself from her past, she's determined to do the opposite and find out what happened to Cassie while unlocking her memories. Armentrout's taut mystery, chilling images, and smooth writing deliver ample suspense, however, the real impact of the story lies in witnessing an individual's rare chance to rediscover and reshape her identity. Ages 14 up.―Publishers Weekly
Gr 7-10 From the very first page, readers are thrust into the mind of confused amnesiac Samantha, who finds herself at the center of the mysterious disappearance of her best friend, Cassie. The protagonist was the last person known to see Cassie alive; the problem is that the teen remembers nothing of their last night together and, for that matter, nothing of her life at all. With the help of her brother and the compelling and handsome Carson Ortiz, Samantha figures out that the old Sam, the one she can't remember, might be one that's worth forgetting. Popular, powerful, and mean, she and her best frenemy Cassie had ruled the school and put down anyone in their path. In the search for someone who would have wanted to cause the two of them harm, she realizes that the list could be a long one. Someone clearly knows things no one else could about that night and leaves threatening notes telling the narrator to stop searching for the truth. Readers are led to wonder if Samantha's gnawing suspicion that she might be the culprit herself is right or perhaps if her developing romance with Carson is really a romance with Cassie's killer. The action-filled plot and the shocking revelation of the murderer's true identity will leave fans of suspense and mystery thoroughly satisfied.

―School Library Journal
Samantha has been missing for days. When she reappears, her entire life seems new, leaving her with many more questions than answers. Her parents, friends, and boyfriend all expect the old Sammy, but the new Sammy is nowhere near the same person. Sammy learns the horrible truth about herself: she used to use her popularity and wealth to control and manipulate everyone. To make matters worse, Cassie, Sammy's best friend, went missing the same day as Sammy, and she is still missing. Most will not admit it, but Sammy feels their stares and is able to read between the lines: they blame her for Cassie's disappearance. Armentrout leaves the reader with many questions: Will Sammy ever recover her memories? Who is to blame for Cassie's disappearance? Did Sammy hurt her friend?
The first-person narrative gives a glimpse into the intense frustration that goes along with memory loss. Sammy shares each of her personal struggles with the reader. After every question and with each clue she finds, the reader partners with Sammy to piece together her discombobulated life. Anyone who picks up this book will develop a close relationship with Sammy, leaving the reader fully invested in the character and the mystery. Sprinkled throughout the story, profanity and flirtation make the dialogue and relationships more realistic. Armentrout tastefully develops love scenes, which may cause the reader to fail to realize the extent of what just occurred. With an unexpected and a little over-the-top resolution, Don't Look Back will keep the reader guessing until the very last page.-Richard Vigdor.―VOYA --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié.
Présentation de l'éditeur
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 aren'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?

En fermant ce roman, je me demande "Mais pourquoi n'ai-je pas lu ce livre plus tôt?"
Le début de l'histoire de Sam m'a complètement happée : l'amnésie est un sujet qui m'a toujours attirée, et Don't Look Back ne fait pas exception ! Qui est-elle, et que s'est-il passé ?
Page après page, nous apprenons aux côtés de Sam qui elle était avant son amnésie, et ce n'est pas beau à voir. Sam est déçue et blessée de voir les réactions autour d'elle, tandis qu'elle reboot sa vie. Son nouveau comportement est une surprise pour son entourage.
J'ai énormément aimé cette découverte d'elle-même, et notamment le principe de seconde "Première" fois.
Les proches de Sam sont nombreux, et là aussi, tout n'est pas rose. Si ses anciens amis et son petit-copain allaient de pair avec son comportement d'avant, cette renaissance et ce changement de personnalité fait des étincelles, pour le pire, comme pour le meilleur ...
ÉVIDEMMENT QU'IL Y A UN PEU DE ROMANCE VOYONS ! Et c'était tellement ...
Mais l'manésie de Sam est causée par quelque chose, et elle seule peut savoir, tout comme sa meilleure amie, Cassie, qui a aussi disparu en même temps qu'elle.
Sam n'est donc pas seulement à la conquête d'elle-même mais aussi du drame qui a pu se produire : pourquoi a-t-elle tout oublié ? Où est sa meilleure amie ?
Les doutes et théories se forment et se déforment rapidement. JLA sème le doute tout au long du livre, et pour être honnête, j'étais quasiment sûre de moi et avais prévu les autres faux indices qui se dissimuleraient au fil des chapitres. J'avais peur d'être surprise, dans le mauvais sens.
En lisant ses 360 pages, je me suis tellement attachée à Sam et à ses nouveaux amis que j'avais peur de refermer ce livre avec un coeur brisé.
Finalement, JLA est vraiment une grosse cachotière. ET JAMAIS VOUS NE DEVINEREZ ! NIAARK !
En conclusion, ce roman plein de mystère et très accrocheur est une petite merveille à ne pas rater !

The story begins with Sam ‘coming to’ after some sort of unknown trauma. She is bloodied, barefoot, dehydrating and concussed. An officer takes her to the hospital, where she is examined and questioned. She remembers nothing - not even her name. Dissociative amnesia.
Sam learns, over the next few days, that she isn’t really a good person, rather the meanest of mean girls, having ruled her school with an iron fist of fear and money and popularity with Cassie, her ‘best friend.’ Cassie is missing and Sam is having visions of her in a red dress, and she knows that she is intricately linked with Cassie’s disappearance, but she doesn’t know how.
Her ‘friends’ are deplorable and those who she has scorned are her lifeline - her twin brother, his girlfriend and her ex-friend Julie and the super-hot Carson. As the memories slowly creep back in, Sam isn’t convinced that she can hold on to her second chance at being a good person - she wonders if she was the one who pushed Cassie? And there is the ever present ‘vision’ that is who she calls The Shadow Man. How can you just go on when all your memories are gone and your best frenemy is dead? Take nothing for granted in this novel, and set aside the day.

Wow it was amazing!!I really enjoyed it!It hooked me from the first page until the end!!I loved the mystery and suspense!!I couldn't guess who was the killer and honestly when I learn, it was a shock for me!!It's really a great change of pace for the author and I hope that she will write more books like this!!And the fact that the romance was secondary didn't bother me at all!!This is a YA thriller...so be prepared... :))
Two teenage girls went missing for four days...until Samantha was found wandering in the streets..Everyone wants to know what happen but Samantha has no recollection of what's happened.And now she is in a life that she doesn't remember and she tries to pick up the pieces and find what really happened...
"...I stared at a stranger in the bathroom mirror.
I'd never seen her face before.
But it was mine."
I don't want to say anymore about the story for fear of spoiling it..because it was amazing and I think everybody must read it!!
I loved the characters, especially Samantha who was a really interesting character!!She tried to change her life..because the way she was before it wasn't good...While she was friend with Cassie the other girl who missing she was rude and many people at school didn't like her.And this is what I liked about her..that she wanted to be a better person!
I also loved her brother and Carson!Carson is so cute and sweet!He cares for Samantha and he was there for her..I honestly can't understand why she hasn't fell in love with him before!!I didn't like her boyfriend and her friends from the beginning!Also Cassie reminds me a lot Alison from the tv series "Pretty little liars".
I loved that it kept me guessing until the end!!!I really enjoyed the final outcome!!If you are looking for a mysterious,psychological thriller with captivating characters, this is what you need!!

When you can’t remember anything and someone has thrown you from a cliff, who do you trust?
I just loved all the characters. Every single one, whether primary or secondary, they all have a role to play and no one is just fluff. It was a great book for when my brain needed scrubbing from a previous book hangover. It had my HEA, a bit of mystery that was easy enough to only need half my brain and had a great moral to send to teens……..
What choices would you make if you got a second chance?
