Exceprt & Giveaway: Watched by C.J. Lyons @SourcebooksFire

About the Book
When hackers can hijack any cellphone or computer webcam, no one is safe - including Jesse.

Jesse seems like a normal sixteen-year-old, but he isn't. He is a victim of King - a ruthless hacker who has been blackmailing Jesse with incriminating screen photos and videos. So far, Jesse's given in to King's demands in order to protect his family. But now King wants something that's too horrible to contemplate- and if he doesn't get it, King will kill Jesse's little sister.

Terrified and helpless, the answer to Jesse's prayers arrives in the form of a plain manila envelope. Inside there's a phone number and a note: I can help.

Advance praise for WATCHED
“A high-speed thriller elevated by its unflinching focus on the
harrowing effects of online bullying.” —Kirkus

"...readers are drawn deep into the daily trials of two victims whose constant fear, anxiety and anger radiate from the pages, causing secondhand stress. But isn't that what we all want from a great book? Lyons should never stop writing YA!" - RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 Stars

“Lyons also handles the parental relationships in this story extremely well. The teen’s behavior has a definite impact on the parent’s lives, which was portrayed honestly with fear and confusion as well as love and patience….this is an excellent book and well worth the emotional investment.”  — School Library Journal
