Capturing the Moments
❝Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.❞ ― Marc Riboud

Aurelia 'Rae' Benson always had a great passion for photography. Even at the early stages of her life, you would never see her without a camera about her somewhere. She was always capturing moments as if they would suddenly disappear, slipping just beyond her grasp and taking with them a precious piece of her memory along with them.
Now at the age of seventeen, even with the privileges of being the school paper editor, part of the welcoming committee and a photography blogger, she felt her life in the middle-of-nowhere town was starting get a little too mundane. She felt as though she had seen all there was to see – as though she had captured it all.
Then entered the new handsome guy at school, with his the brooding eyes and cool aura. He was withdrawn, made no attempts to befriend anyone and spent a longer-than-normal amount of time behind the muted screen of his mobile phone. He was an intriguing, enigmatic – even unsettling, at times – individual and interested her a little more than he should have.
When Aurelia was assigned to be his friend, although shook up and nervous at first, she soon eased into the idea. So on her own terms, she sets off on an emotional whirlwind adventure to unravel and befriend the mystery that is Blaze Nicholas.
