Arikara Hitchney doesn't want much out of her life but her horses and her little sister, Hia. When Hia begs Ree to enter the Selection, Ree does—after all, she can't deny her sister anything, and what's the risk? What Ree doesn't expect is to actually be chosen to travel to Angeles, but more than that, she doesn't expected Prince Hendrix.
Witty and philosophical, the two hit it off right away. Arikara finds herself falling in love, something she had never thought would happen, and Hendrix and Illéa find they're falling in love with her. When a deadly and brutal rebel attack threatens everyone at the palace on a brand new level, Ree faces a terrible choice: stay with the boy she loves and face almost certain death, or go into the lucrative witness protection program and pretend she isn't Illéa's—or Hendrix's—favorite.
Based off Kiera Cass' Selection Series, The Witness is a heart-pounding love story...with a twist.
