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! Continue reading

Felicity – a girl he meets via a home video. Finding her is the key to escape.

Rachel – more concerned with animals than people. Can Jesse persuade her to put her own safety first?

And Caleb – disillusioned, angry, and maybe dangerous.

Friendship comes at a price in a world where nothing can be relied upon. Will Jesse’s new mates help him flee or is he… destined to always be alone? Continue reading
