Review of Chasing Prophecy by James Moser

Chasing ProphecyChasing Prophecy by James Moser
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It took me a little while to get into the story. At first, it didn’t appear to be going anywhere and I thought I had made a mistake reading a YA book. It was just a story about a boy called Mo, who has two ‘Mums’, and who gets bullied at school because of the relationship between the two women. His best friend Max, always seems to be protecting him, and a girl called Kazzy, who Mo idolises, is always around to stand up for him. Then Kazzy and her mother join a commune in the mountains, called the Bethlehem Ranch, where everyone’s names are changed. Kazzy becomes Prophecy. The locals call it a cult not a commune and are suspicious of it. The story picks up when Love Bethlehem, the leader of the commune, dies and his sons take over. The commune owes a lot of back taxes, and the kids get drawn into illegal dealings and threatened if they ever go to the police. The pace certainly hots up from then on. An accident happens, or is it a murder? One of the young kids goes missing and help comes from something else living in the mountains, who or what is it? I think teenagers/young adults would thoroughly enjoy this book and certainly relate to the characters in it. Very well written.
