I get that teen novels are supposed to be a little over the top but this is freaking delusional. Maybe as a tee I could have put my blinders on and believed a concept like this, but it gets more and more ridiculous the more you keep reading. I can only suspend belief for so long. Blythe goes to a special prep school funded by her parent's employers, in fact almost every kid there has family that works "up in the labs." When Blythe's best friend snaps at school one day and starts ranting and raving about the cameras everywhere, Blythe is concerned. This is unlike her friend, she vows to get to the bottom of it and decides to eavesdrop on the principal's conversation after school and that is all she remembers. She finds out later that her principal killed himself in his office (suspicious) and no one is allowed to see Gabrielle. She and her friends Tanya and Tucker know that something else is going on and will do anything to figure out what so they can help their friend. Over the top and super unbelievable. I literally can't. ( )

I received this book through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program.

In a word, disappointing. The teenagers were all soft characters, half developed and lacking depth. Of course, I suppose if your memory is swiss cheese, maybe that explains it. I figured out the 'big secret' by page 60, and the suspenseful bits just seemed to fall flat for me after that. I read a lot of teen fiction, especially genre fiction like urban fantasy and sci-fi. I've read quite a bit of this author's adult works and was hopeful this would have that same precise world-building and interesting character point of view, but with a teen interest. It didn't. It came across as campy without the humor, and just didn't do it for me. Two stars because at least there were no grammatical or spelling errors. ( )

Someone Is Always Watching is a young adult novel focusing on a group of students at a magnet school for STEM. Blythe, the central character, has a close group of friends, though she is forbidden from seeing Tucker, the boy she likes best. Everyone seems to expect Tucker to fail at life, to do something heinous and wrong. She knows he dared her to do something bad and when she did, she enjoyed it so much it scared her.

A lot of things are scaring her, she’s having waking dreams of being covered in blood. Her younger sister is having nightmares, and her good friend Gabi is acting out, as though she is seeing hallucinations. When Gabi was sent to the principal’s office after a hallucinatory event in class, Blythe followed behind to eavesdrop. She sees the principal murdered. Did Gabi do that? She doesn’t remember because she passed out, hit in the head, she believes.

These are smart kids whose sense of reality is being distorted, but by real forces or trauma? That’s the question they are trying to figure out. Is Gabi a murderer? Who else among her classmates has killed someone. What is everybody hiding?

Someone Is Always Watching takes completely normal adolescent egocentrism and turns it up a notch. In other words, just because they are egocentric adolescents, it doesn’t mean someone isn’t watching them.

I liked Someone Is Always Watching but occasionally wanted it to hurry up and end already. A part of this was the flatness of several of the characters. With Blythe providing the point of view, it’s possible she just didn’t get to know her friends well enough to make them interesting or the author simply didn’t put in the time. At time it reminded me of a Charlie Brown special showing adults talking to Charlie and the Peanuts gang. Too much of the story relied on the efforts of people who were not in the book. I also think the story would have been better if Gabi were hidden by Blythe so she had that moral quandary. It’s frustrating that one of the more interesting and pivotal characters spends most of the story out of the action.

I was provided an ARC of Someone Is Always Watching by the publisher through LibraryThing.

This is my first time reading a book by Kelley Armstrong. She had been on my radar for awhile, so I was excited to get this book (Thanks Tundra Press!). I was not disappointed. I wouldn't recommend the book for preteen or young teens, this is more for the 16+ crowd. It is well written and will keep you engaged, wondering what will happen next. Just when you think you know? The rug will be pulled from under you. I would recomend it. 4/5 stars.
