Book Summary:

It takes more than a school trip to Washington, D.C. to change fifteen-year-old Christy’s life. It takes murder. A witness to the brutal slaying of a Senator’s aide, Christy finds herself watched not only by the killers and the FBI but also by two hot boys. She discovers that if she can’t help the FBI, who want to protect her, it will cost her and her new friends their lives.

Watched by Cindy Hogan was a clean contemporary suspense novel.   I like the characters Cindy created and found the main character Christy to be someone I could relate to.  Christy has strong morals and values yet finds herself placed in circumstances where she questions what she believes in and what she should do.  She doesn’t always make the best decisions but tries her best to make things right. Christy along with the friends she meets on her trip are flawed and each has a distinct personality that comes through.

While I liked the characters in this book there were times when I questioned the believability of some aspects of the storyline.  If I’m reading a fantasy novel I can suspend disbelief and go with the story.  But when I’m reading a realistic story I expect everything to be believable.  There were a few things in this story that I had a hard time buying. Despite this Cindy Hogan has written some wonderful characters into an exciting adventure story and I look forward to reading more about them in the sequel to this book.
