Don’t Look Back
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Summary: She doesn’t remember a thing. She doesn’t remember how she treated other people before. She doesn’t remember all the things she regrets now. She doesn’t remember who tried to kill her supposed best friend; Cassie. Sam has woken up in a hospital up with no memory of her life. Not even her name, her popularity, and her dream boyfriend. Yet she had to do something to get all these things in her life. The old Sam, the one she doesn’t want to be was the definition of “mean girl”. She doesn’t want to be the “mean girl” anymore. She is getting a second chance at everything. To be a better daughter and friend. Not only that but now she is falling hard for her childhood best friend Carson, but the old Sam would treat him like trash even though he cared for her. Yet Cassie is still missing, and Sam is recovering memories on what really happened that night and her past. Someones knows about her recovering memories and wants her to keep quiet about it. Now all that Sam wants is to recover her memories to find out what happened tat night and change herself to the opposite of what Sam used to be. I absolutely loved this contemporary/mystery. Jennifer L. Armentrout has done it again. If you haven’t read any of Jen’s books then this book would be a great start. You will not regret it, unlike Sam. (haha see what I did there).
My Review: She has done it again people! Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of my all time favorite authors and this book gives me another reason to love her. This mystery definitely was unique. Sam is just a character that you need to find out more about until you judge her. Because the old Sam was the “mean girl” of everybody’s life, but she had a reason for it she just doesn’t remember it. And nowthat she did lose her memories she has a second chance to redo her life that way that she wants to do it. Not only was the book added to my favorites list but one of the boy characters was added to the list of “fictional characters that I am in love with” list. Oh Carson. You are the definition of sweetness. he always cared for Sam even though she treated him life trash because she was a popular girl. They used to be childhood best friends until Cassie came along and ruined everything. So now that she is finally getting along with him and not to mention falling for him really is a adorable thing. Now lets talk about this supposed “best friends” and “dream boyfriend” My feelings don’t describe how much I hate them for making Sam what she was int he past. And now that she is finally getting away from them two is awesome, because they are just annoying to do that to Sam. Other than these tow the book was truly amazing. It has been added to my favorites list and I am pretty sure that if you read it its going to go on yours as well.
P.S. That prom scene will make you feel all the feelings.
“I was stuck in a life I didn’t remember, squeezed into the shell of this girl – this Samantha Joe Franco – and the more I learned about her, the more I was starting to hate her.”
