Book Review of Watching You by Shannon Greenland

Viola’s always been that girl from that family, so a scholarship to a prestigious private school in Florida was supposed to be her ticket out of poverty and into a brand-new life. But Viola’s secrets have followed her. Her relationship with the intelligent and gorgeous Riel should have been the salvation she needed—he understands her troubled past better than anyone. But then weird things start to happen.

Frightening messages.

Missing personal items.

The unsettling feeling that she’s being watched.

Viola’s never been one to give her trust easily, but she’ll need to trust in Riel if she’s going to survive her stalker. Because she’s not fighting for a new life anymore—she’s fighting to stay alive.

This story made me both laugh and cry. Viola is someone who really goes after her goals and will do anything to make them happen. She easily becomes a well-liked main character you find yourself wanting to succeed. In a lot of ways Viola seemed wiser than the average 17-year-old, but given her background and personality, it makes sense. 

The stalker element to this story kept me on edge and wondering who her stalker could be. When the truth finally comes out it was someone I wasn't expecting but added another element to the story as a whole. 

I really enjoyed the writing style of Greenland and would love to read more novels by her. This book does have elements that could be triggers for people who have had traumatic experiences so be mindful of that. Anyone who enjoys reading YA, mysteries, and romance would enjoy this book!
