Watched by Tihema Baker is a compelling teen read. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and spent most of my weekend with my head in this book. Rory and Jason are best friends, more like brothers, having grown up together in foster homes and now at boarding school. When strange and frightening dreams turn into something more sinister they begin to suspect that something is amiss. It's not long until they discover that they are different, that they are prodigies with special superpowers destined to act with other selected teens to train to become the Watched, an organisation that protects the earth. Erased from their previous lives and taken to be trained at a secret facility, the relationship between the two friends is tested as they discover things about themselves, the others they train with, and the Watched. Nothing is what it seems as they both struggle to understand their mission and what is the truth. Baker deftly explores themes of friendship, bravery, compassion and authority without being heavy-handed, keeping the pace tight and the action well balanced with these philosophical questions. For fans of The Hunger Games and Spark. - Stella
