Back of the Book Blurb #104 Challenge

From Sioux's PageSioux offers this challenge.

She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title). The genre is wide-open.
Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post. Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs.  You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)

The Family

Alan didn’t know why he felt like he was being watched but he knew he was. He walked the mile back to his apartment instead of taking the bus so he could figure out who was following him.

Before his parents disappeared when he turned 18, they told him that they had escaped from The Family. Whenever they knew that they had been found, they moved. They felt it would be best if they separated and he changed his name. They promised to keep in touch with him. He never heard from again and that was ten years ago.

When he pulled his keys out of his pocket, he felt something else there. In his pocket was a hundred-dollar bill! He knew that he didn’t have this when he left home this morning. Where had it come from? Was that a message written in tiny letters in the corner? (149 words)
