I read it quickly and then was disappointed because it ended because I want more!!
I really liked it. He walks down t this book starts out with Christy has returned home after her disastrous debate trip to Washington, DC. They have to escape to survive. When Christy is explaining Ice Man, you can see what he looks like in your mind. This in account of several reasons that I will explain in my review. Christy, a self proclaimed nerd and an school outcast, during her time in witness protection gets transformed into the person she has always wanted to be.
Sportive and confident. At times however she is that person and at other times she is whiny and acts like and immature child. That kind of annoys me. A lot. No, there is a second guy and she has no idea who she likes more. It seems to me that she should be more focused on saving herself and her family instead of which guy she likes more.

This book will make you laugh and cry both out loud and you will want to dive right into book 3, I know I do! I received and ARC of this book from the author but the opinions expressed here are strictly my own. Aug 11, Eppie rated it it was ok. It's kind of a cool premise for a book, but completely implausible. When people go into witness protection, the government doesn't fake their death, especially if it is a minor. It annoyed me that she finally learned to like herself after changing everything, while still worrying about what her parents and church leaders would say about her decisions.
I wouldn't be so hung up on that, except that she is still obsessed with what other people think, not her own beliefs religious or otherwise. Sh It's kind of a cool premise for a book, but completely implausible. She never talks about what she actually believes and how those beliefs are at odds with what she's being asked to do. Instead, it's all about what her parents taught her or believed and how they would feel about her decisions.
Also, she's kind of an idiot, not being able to figure out how to contact the guy she likes. I can see that being a problem back in the 80s, but in the age of internet and smartphones, it really does seem like she was more intent on feeling sorry for herself than actually being proactive about keeping in touch with her friends and using the things she learned about herself in the previous book to stand up for herself at school.
Aug 30, Julia rated it really liked it. This is a good book. It is a novel that has suspenseful, romantic, and intriguing. At first I was confused about what does the author want to tell us. This book is talking about a girl was been bullied, but after she met a boy, her life started to change. Although her life became better than before, she doesn't trust herself at all.
When I read to the end of this book I felt that this is a book that I will strongly recommend. Oct 23, Lydia rated it really liked it. This second in the series was even better. It was amazing watching Christy's transformation under the Witness Protection program. As a character, she also became more likable, particularly as she stood up to her values. Aug 29, Kathy rated it it was amazing Shelves: suspense , young-adult. Christy is a very smart and strong minded sixteen year old who is forced to become someone else to keep her safe. I really enjoyed reading about the transformation of Christy and the dangers she has to face every day.
Jul 11, Richard M. Great continuation! Tis is a good place holder from the first book. Makes you want to keep reading to find out where you are going to end up. Aug 04, Samantha rated it did not like it Shelves: juvenile-lit , suspense , cheesy-romance , didn-t-finish. I just couldn't get into this story.
Younger viewers don't watch prime time
I didn't like the main characters relationship with her love interest. He was never respectful of her standards and wishes. The writing gets your Blood Moving! This book sizzles and pops with unexpected twists and turns. Everything in the book leaves you wanting more. Dec 18, 03EmilyM rated it it was amazing. Protected is a story written by Cindy M.
It's the 2nd book in the watched series and is all about Cristy's life and adventures after leaving behind the murder that she witnessed in Washington, D. This story takes plalce all over the U. Here's her story. Cristy's home is just how she left it. She thought she had escaped all the troubles she had faced in D. About a week before Protected is a story written by Cindy M.

The theme of this story is: Listen to the FBI or you might have to deal with bad consequences. I recomend this book to mastly girls because of all the romance and girly vibe the book gives. Feb 28, Arla Leave Mommy Alone rated it it was amazing. Thank you to Cindy M. Hogan for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Christy imagined she'd get back to her life at school and be accepted by the 'in' crowd - since she did it in Washington D. She couldn't be more wrong. Although Christy has been forever changed by her ordeal on the field trip - having witnessed an actual murder and been shot at and barely survived - it's hard to change the perception kids at school have of her.
Especially, when she can't breathe a wor Thank you to Cindy M. Especially, when she can't breathe a word of what she's been through to anyone, not even her parents. Since she feels so different, when she shows up to school and nothing has changed, it comes as a bit of a shock to her. She's still being bullied by some and overlooked by the rest.
Watched trilogy by Cindy M. Hogan
She gets an unexpected visitor. He shows up one day in a convertible - almost as smokin' as he is - and saunters his way up to her in front of the cheerleaders, and whoever else happens to be in front of the school, and plants a kiss on her guaranteed to make her, and all witnesses, weak in the knees. Actually, let's let Christy describe it: "Then the unthinkable happened. He kissed me. It wasn't just a little kiss, either. It was one that makes you feel like you could die today and it wouldn't matter. When he finally released me, he said, 'At last.
It wakes them up to your existence and proclaims that you have something they should envy. Gorgeous Alex has put Christy on the map. Problem is, her heart says one thing and her mind says something else. She can't seem to get them to reconcile. Before Christy has the chance to see what Alex's display of affection has done for her social status, they find themselves in mortal danger, once again.
This time, there's no coming back. She's forced to leave everything she knows and loves behind and enter Witness Protection. It's the only option if she's going to protect her family and keep herself alive. Her life becomes unlike anything she could've ever dreamed up or imagined it would be. She's pushed to the extremes and finds that she is capable of so much more than she thought possible. It's a rollercoaster ride an adult would have a hard time digesting, let alone a 16 yr.
Cindy Hogan wrote an incredible sequel to a great book. With Protected, she hit it so far out of the park, that ball won't be recovered anytime soon! I was so hooked on this book, I actually kept pressing the 'next page' button on my Kindle begging it to give me more story at the end.
Christy is practically unrecognizable in this book, which is the point of Witness Protection, right? Just as it happened in Watched, the supporting characters won me over with equal intensity as the story's heroine. It's a very clean read infused with action, intensity, romance and intrigue. The profusion of twists and turns, up and downs, left me breathless. I guarantee you will be hooked on this series by the end of Protected, if you weren't already with Watched. May 16, 08kyannat rated it it was amazing. Christy is now back in Helena at school. At home she is a very smart girl that gets picked on alot.
But after school ended when she was about to go home. Alex showed up at her high school and gave her a big kiss in front of every one in her grade. Well she still is not 16 so she can't date yet but her birthday is in less then 2 weeks. When she got home she saw some cars parked in front of her house.
The next Morning Alex showed up to her house. Her parent Christy is now back in Helena at school. She portrayed Christy as a likeable young woman surrounded by unbelievable events. Laci had great intonation and pace, keeping the story suspenseful throughout. She had differing voices for male and female characters, and expressed frustration and urgency when appropriate without becoming shrill.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audio book! Would you consider the audio edition of Protected to be better than the print version? I've both read the book and listened to it on Audible. Loved it both times and really enjoyed listening to it. What other book might you compare Protected to and why? This is an intriguing story line with great plot twists and suspense.
It was refreshing, intense and gripping. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. Great listen!! De : Cindy M. Lu par : Laci Morgan. Description Christy has the guy. Hogan P Cindy M. Ce que les membres d'Audible en pensent.
