Big Library Read: Eyes on You
From June 9 – June 23 join millions of readers around the world as they read the ebook or listen to the eaudiobook, Eyes on You.
For TV host Robin Trainer, everything seems good again. After losing her on-air job two years ago, she has fought her way back, and now with her new show climbing in the ratings and her first book a bestseller, she’s being called a double threat.
But suddenly things go wrong. A few small but nasty incidents shake her confidence: a vicious note tucked into her purse at her book signing; the photo on her book jacket slashed in her office; a doll that looks just like her—but with its eyes gouged out—left on her desk chair. Soon the meanness turns threatening. Someone has eyes on Robin, an adversary with a dark agenda, and the clues point to someone she works with. As she frantically tries to put the pieces together and unmask an enemy hiding in the shadows all too close to her, it becomes terrifyingly clear that the person responsible isn’t going to stop until Robin loses everything that matters to her . . . including her life.
In this nail-biting thriller full of stunning twists, Kate White takes you behind the scenes of the glamorous, high-intensity world of television and ratchets up the suspense, page by page, to the shocking end.

Here are some discussion questions to get you thinking:
1. Eyes on You begins with TV host Robin Trainer attending a huge party to celebrate the publication of her new book. Robin is rattled to find a mean-spirited message added to her note card. Robin tore up the note instead of immediately showing it to someone. Would you have handled the situation the same way if you were facing an anonymous enemy? Why or why not?
2. Kate White does an excellent job of highlighting the tension and personality clashes that can occur in a work setting. Think about your own job history and discuss (as politely as possible!) some of the conflicts you’ve faced.
3. From Carter Brooks to Vicky Cruz to Bettina Lane, Eyes on You has a number of engaging supporting characters. Who was your favorite—and least favorite—character? Why?
4. Eyes on You takes readers into the oft-cutthroat world of television. From what you know of TV, did White’s portrayal seem authentic? Why do you think our culture is so obsessed with TV personalities and other types of celebrities? Why do we root for the success of certain famous people but seemingly relish the “fall” of others? Apply these same questions to the characters in Eyes on You, particularly the last one. Share your thoughts with the group.
5. A theme that runs through many suspense novels—including Eyes on You—is that people are not always who they appear to be. Think back to a time in your life when you were surprised by the actions of someone you thought you knew well. How did it make you feel? How did you deal with the person?
6. When suspicion is thrown on Robin herself, did you find that you were sympathetic towards her, or did you feel it was the result of her own actions? Explain.
7. What did you think of the “Big Reveal?” Were you surprised? Did you guess and feel vindicated? What do you imagine is next for Robin, Alex, Bettina, Vicky and the others?
