Chasing Prophecy is the story of Mo, a shy teen who is just trying to survive high school. He has secretly fallen in love with a girl named Prophecy who lives with a group that some call a commune and others call a cult. When she disappears, Mo must find the courage to face the monster that her family has become. Chasing Prophecy is a contemporary coming of age story that is heart-warming, suspenseful, and beautifully written. This book chronicles the adolescence of one boy who must transform himself to save the girl of his dreams. The Pacific Northwest legend of Bigfoot is a fresh paranormal element. (source: Goodreads )

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, Thank you James!!
I more than often read books in a girls perspective so it was a nice change to read something in a guys perspective. I loved how there were pictures at the starts of each chapter, and it thought it was cool how the characters had quirky names, not your average names. At first the main character Mo seemed like a bit of a wimp because he was getting bullied and he couldn't stand up for him self but his character really developed throughout the story and I admired how he stood up to those who were mean to him and started to have a back bone. There were some parts of the story that were a little dragged out but other than that it was alright. I also liked that Mo was just your average person, he wasn't someone really popular so a lot of people reading the  book could relate to him I feel.
I recommend this to those of the ages 13-17 but if you like the sound of this then you definitely should check it out because the story is so unique.

Overall: This was a really interesting concept and a lot different from what I would usually read, I feel for me there was still something missing which is why I gave it 3 stars but it was still an interesting read :)
