Hillary sometimes thinks her life is so strange, she must be the subject of an experiment by otherworldly beings who are constantly testing her reactions to things. Hillary's parents are free spirits. They don't have an actual home; they and Hillary travel the country in a motor home, stopping for a couple of months at a time for Hillary to go to school. They often live for those stopped months in the home of a relative or some trusting family away on vacation. For money they make knickknacks to sell at flea markets or craft fairs.

Although her life is strange, Hillary likes moving around and never getting tied down to a place. She doesn't mind always being the new kid in school because she knows she'll be gone soon anyway so it wouldn't be any use to make friends. Then comes Ashwater, California.

Hillary's family is going to stop in Ashwater for the longest they've ever stopped anywhere, and Hillary is going to have nearly an entire school year in one school. Even more unusual is the fact that she makes a couple of good friends right away. Serena is the most popular girl in her class, the one all of the other girls flock toward. And Cass is a very quiet and bright girl who seems to have no friends. Suddenly Hillary finds herself stuck between these two friends who don't see why she likes the other one. Will Hillary be able to stay friends with both girls? Will she be happy to finally leave Ashwater?

I liked Cass' sensitivity to Hillary and the way the two of them were able to become friends so quickly. I also liked that Serena and her friends didn't turn on Hillary like many popular girls would have, especially when she didn't drop Cass as a friend.

Even though Hillary didn't mind, I couldn't help feeling like her parents were mean to move her around so much, never giving her a chance to put down roots and make friends.

Did you ever have the feeling that you were only an experiment, and that someone was always watching you? This is what goes through the mind of Hillary Siegal when her family decides to settle in Ashwater, California for the school year. She dreams up the idea of “The Watchers,” people who look at her and her different choices and reactions to things, and she comes to believe that she is the only real person. Can it be true that she’s the only real person, as an experiment for The Watchers?
When Hillary’s parents tell her that they will be staying in Ashwater for the entire school year, Hillary is shocked. Her family will be house-sitting for another family that is on a long vacation. Hillary is used to moving around, and not getting used to her new school and tries not to make friends. Now, she’s forced to stay put. She decides that she is an experiment of The Watchers, and Ashwater is a new part of the experiment. Hillary forms a journal in which she writes letters to The Watchers and keeps a list of “Like” and “Don’t Like” things.
As Hillary goes to school, she meets people in the weirdest ways, and they become some of her best friends. One of these important people is Serena Montgomery. At first, Hillary is just Serena’s tutor, and Serena seems like only the “popular girl” to her. Yet, later on, Serena invites Hillary to join her and her friends at the mall and they become great friends. One day during tutoring, Hillary asks Serena if she ever feels like she’s the only real person. Serena replies that she sometimes feels as though she is the only unreal person. This means a lot to Hillary, and she assumes she was wrong about Serena only being the “popular girl”. After that, she adds Serena to her “Like” list in her journal.
Hillary’s family receives a phone call from the people they are house-sitting for, and they need to leave. Hillary hears the news, and she gets really upset. She doesn’t want to leave her new friends and her new school, but she has to go with her parents. They pack up their car and leave Ashwater, but wait! Is it really true that Hillary is the only real person, as an experiment for The Watchers? Well, I couldn’t tell you, since then nobody would actually want to buy the book!
I think that this book is one that if you passed it in a book store, you’d shrug your shoulders and pass right by it. Although, if you picked it off a book shelf and read the summary on the back cover, you’d want to flip right to the first chapter and start reading. I read The Ashwater Experiment with my friend, and we decided upon reading three chapters a night, but I always found myself reading ahead and going past the three-chapters-a-night plan. It’s funny, it’s serious, it’s a great book. After reading it, it made my Favorite Books list, and I recommend it highly.

In this book, Hillary jumps to many conclusions. At first, she thinks she is the only real person on Earth. She thought that nothing around her was real, just there to test her reactions. "I sat very still, letting the idea slip into me: My life was a giant experiment and I was the guinea pig. I didn't know who or what was performing the experiment, but I could feel all their invisible eyes on me. I decided to call them the Watchers." Hillary also wrote her thoughts and comments in a journal to the Watchers. "I stopped at the apartment door and imagined that on the other side of the door was absolutely nothing. Space, black and swirling. It would take my opening of the door to make something appear behind it. I opened it, and an entire scene came to life, complete with furniture, characters, even sound effects," Hillary thought. These are some of the things that went on in Hillary's mind.
I think this was a great book. It really interested me while I read it. I think people with big imaginations would be able to read this book.
As you can see, Hillary had a lot of thoughts about the experiment done by the Watchers. Find out what else happens to Hillary, in this book, The Ashwater Experiment.
