Through The Lens: Chasers by James Phelan

Welcome to our weekly meme, Through The Lens! We’re combining a love of books with photography in order to visually display what we read and love.

How It Works

Each Thursday BA will be sharing a photograph taken of a book, such as a current read, recommendation, or a favourite, with an object or in a setting the reader feels represents an element in the story. Then we’ll share a short blurb about why we chose it.

You Can Join In Too

If you want to participate you can. You don’t have to be an expert photographer, the point of this meme is to be creative and share! Take your book, including eBooks, and display those covers with something that shows what you took away from the story. You’re welcome to post another day, we just like alliteration here at BA, and there is no theme unless you want to have one.

We do ask, if you wish to join in, that you grab the banner, link back to us, and share your link too so everyone can see your photos!

This Week

Chasers by James Phelan- Chasers is the first book in the Alone series by Phelan. I was recommended this book by Bonnie and at first was a little reluctant because I don’t often read teenage dystopian fiction. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. This is the sort of book you cannot put down and having been to New York myself several years ago, I could picture Jesse running through Central Park. It’s nice to read a teenage fiction novel set in New York, written by an Australian author from the perspective of an Australian teenager. I feel like there were limited stereotypes of the typical Australian (which drive me crazy) and it is a fresh voice for teenagers to experience, especially those living overseas.
