Being a twin isn’t all that bad, nor is it all that good. Being the fat twin makes things a little worse. Seventeen year old, Jessa Shelby has been all but ignored. Trimmed down, but not skinny like her sister, she has decided to make her mark in her final year in high school.

Things begin anew the summer before her senior year when she meets Ethan Hart, a super hot boy with a twisted past. Unfortunately, he has a girlfriend. Relegated to friend status with Ethan, she turns her eyes on football jock, Josh Macon, whose crush worthy too. No longer the ‘fat girl’, Josh seems to be interested in her too.

Spending more and more time with Ethan causes unexpected complications and she finds herself falling for the wrong boy. Josh is sweet but wants more than she can give. His warning about Ethan’s past may have come too late. And gasping for air with a noose around her neck, she has to wonder if trust came at a very high price.

Received a Copy From Netgalley, in exchange of review.


Have you ever came across a book one that gave you feeling? One that you knew you were going to fall in love with? The feeling that got up when I came across THROUGH THE LENS . I’m not sure what it was about the book and from moment I read the summary of the book I got a good feeling about it. Title of the book, THROUGH THE LENS is what caught my attention first, followed by cover and summary. I feel, as a reader you cannot help but be captured by the title, and wonder if there is meaning behind the title and how it fits with the story. I was. Plus the summary had both suspense, thriller and mystery added to the mix. I know that I wondered if Ethan was as dangerous as others warned Jessa about? If she truly has anything to fear about? As for me, I wasn’t sure how I should feel about Ethan, I got both good and bad vibes about him. I felt like there could be possibility that he could be violent just by the way he acted with Jessa at times, but at times he came to her rescue. There were times that I was confused about him, about his actions like Jessa was. Ethan was a complicated person, at least to me.

Jessa I loved from beginning of the novel. Thought I was never overweight like she had been, I felt as I could relate how she was feeling, to how others treated her because she was different. I feel like in a way I am aware how that feels like. I saw how much she changed from start of the book to the end. I loved that she kept on going, not giving up once despite the challenges that she was facing, one of the things that I loved about her. No matter what others might thought about her or of her, she kept on going. Not just that but I loved how she way trying to stay loyal to Allie by trying to stay away from Ethan. It was clear that their friendship meant a lot to her, despite the fact that Allie was Ethan’s girlfriend. I loved the friendship that the two of them had. Plus, Allie is one character that you felt that you should dislike but you couldn’t because of how nice she was. It’s horrible what she had to go through. I have feeling that it probably changed her.

You can’t help but wonder about mystery disappearance of the girls. Especially when it all seemed to follow a pattern, they seemed to be connected to Ethan in some way. That pattern started to look suspicious to me. I started to wonder if there was a possibility that Ethan could had something do with it. I started wonder if maybe he was as dangerous as everyone said he was. Expect I knew how much he loved, cared for Jessa, I could tell that she meant everything to him, so why would he got after her? What came afterwards wasn’t what I had suspected and not the person I suspected. That discovery came as shock to me like it had to everyone else. I was on edge of my seat. However I was glad that the person responsible was finally caught. A twist that you won’t see coming.

Haunting. Mysterious. Beautiful
