Amber Roberts | 8 comments Read it in about 2004 for my middle school reading class. For the life of me cannot recall the title or author.


Teen girl witnesses a crime and to protect her and her family they stick the family in witness protection. The main girl acts stupid, decides to go back to her old house and these murderers trap her in a closet. The one major detail I recall is how she escaped her closet. The crimials don't know theres a secret panel in the ceiling she can crawl out through.

I thought it might be Lois Duncan's Don't Look Behind You but the synopsis I read doesn't match what I recall. And the only parts I may have correct are the family go into witness protection and the bit on how the girl escapes a closet. I vould be remembering the rest incorrectly.

Anyone know?

Amber Roberts | 8 comments In that case, it would be the book after all. Sounds like that's the only part I recalled correctly.

Here's the Google Books preview of Don't Look Behind You by Lois Duncan - https://books.google.com/books?id=Z_e... There are different cover images.

Just to confirm, is this your book?

Amber Roberts | 8 comments While the cover isn't what I recall, it's been like 14 years so I doubt I'd recall it properly if I saw the correct one. But after a quick search for the section of text I do recall, yes, it's the correct book. I just don't know how to move this to solved using the app....

Glad you found your book, Amber.

No worries. You need to use the full desktop website to mark this request as Solved. I used the small "edit" link beside the topic header.
