Watching You by Lisa Jewell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There's stalking, and then there's taking an active interest in what's going on in your little corner of the world. I think that's what Freddie tells himself as he take photos and logs what he sees from his window. It's only later that we (and Freddie) learn that he's an "aspie" and as he claims his label, his world both explodes and implodes. His father's relationship with Jenna, Bella and Joey, and perhaps other women is something he's trying to decipher. And Jenna's trying to keep her somewhat insane mother from hurting herself or others, while also keeping track of Bella (it's not stalking if you're concerned about a friend, right?).
What exactly is going on - is it all misunderstandings? or coincidence? or something more sinister? I did guess the Who and What before the Big Reveal, but it didn't for a second keep me from enjoying how the author drips out that information.
