Don’t Turn Around Short-Story Contest Finalists!

In Michelle Gagnon’s novel, Don’t Turn Around, orphaned computer hacker Noa likes being a loner. But when a mysterious corporation threatens her life, she’s forced to find  someone who can offer her support and protection. Peter is a rich kid who runs his own hacker alliance. He’s had his own run-ins with said mysterious corp. Noa and Peter have to use their hacking skills to unveil the dark secrets that could take down AMRF—and protect their lives from danger.

Inspired by Noa and Peter’s adventures, we asked you to write a story about teen rebels with a cause.
