Someone out there is watching Shaley "always watching" to be exact....

Book: Always Watching by Brandilyn Collins and Amerly Collins, Zondervan, 2009
Always Watching (Rayne Tour, The) 

Genre: Suspense/Mystery
Target Audience: Girls 16-19
Subjects: God always watching over us, fear, parent relationships
Summary: Dead. Her best friend on the tour is dead. And she was the one who found him. She’ll never forgot the look of that eye…
Brandilyn is the daughter of a rock star and one night towards the ends of her mom’s performance, she walks into a room looking for her friend and finds him dead. The police investigation begins and soon more threats start to come, against her this time. Apparently Tom’s death has something to do with her. Shaley’s best friend Brittany has a sixth sense about things and is seems to her that she is being warned that something might happen to Shaley. The clues seem to indicate the same thing. But who? And why? Can they find out in time to prevent Shaley’s death?
Notes: This book is a teenage thriller, not too intense, but definitely focused on the murder mystery and messed up minds. The killer’s thoughts are shown throughout the story and it is obvious that he is not only dangerous because of his willingness to kill, but also because of the instability of his mind.
The message in this book is that the killer isn’t the one always watching, God is. He’s always there watching over her, even when it doesn’t seem like it. It’s not real deep, the point of the story in the intensity, not the message, but it is there.
Recommendation Scale: 3
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Hebrews 13:5 - ...God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you".
