Summary from goodreads:
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.

Review:
Watched was a very frustrating book. The main character Christy was just so oblivious and stupid through my eyes. I think that’s why I kept reading it, just to see what she would mess up next. She was so na├»ve, but I suppose it was understandable considering her having no friends. But the author made Christy seem very obnoxious and very aware of her being smart.
I didn’t really like Alex for Christy, I don’t know he was too used to getting everything he wants. Rick on the other hand was amazing even with Kira all over him. The idea of Christy being 15 and the guys being 17 possible turning 18 seemed wrong to me. The book really centered itself around the love triangle between Alex, Rick and Christy. Well more like the war between Rick and Alex. Marybeth although supportive didn’t strike me as innocent. I didn’t think it was fair for her to guilt trip Christy about her scholarship.
There was only action in the beginning and toward the end. I didn’t really like the lovey dovey stuff, it annoyed me that she kept making the wrong decision. I loved Jeremy he was my favorite character. The author gave him so much charisma! I give this book 4/5 feathers!
