This follow-up to the critically acclaimed Don't Turn Around—which Kirkus Reviews called "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for teens, a surefire hit"—raises the stakes to their absolute limit and will leave readers begging for the exciting conclusion. Having outsmarted the sinister Project Persephone, Noa and her friend Zeke are on the run again, moving across the country, protecting runaways before they become test subjects for the Project's horrific experiments. Noa knows all too well what that feels like: Whatever was done to her has left her exhausted and scared.
Back in Boston, Peter anxiously follows Noa's movements from his computer. But he's desperate to do more, especially when he learns what the Project has done to his ex-girlfriend, Amanda.
Then, in an explosive confrontation, Noa and her team are trapped in the one place they thought was safe. It will take everything Noa and Peter have to bring down the Project. And with no one to trust and enemies hiding at every turn, they may be the only people alive who can.

"I just finished the second book and will very shortly be starting the last. I am addicted to this series! It is so well written, which as a writer, I really appreciate. I have always loved the creativity of young adult fiction, which adult fiction often lacks. However, usually in young adult fiction the grammar, vocabulary, and the actual development of ideas and characters suffer. What makes Michelle Gagnon's series so good is that it has all the key components to an excellent read: a completely unique plot; strong, complex characters; interesting vocabulary; and a story that draws you in and keeps you turning the pages until the end with great anticipation. I am only sad that after the third book I will have to say goodbye to Noa and Peter and all the others I have come to love so much...unless of course it becomes a movie!!!! Keeping my fingers crossed!"
