Chasing Shadows by author Kerry Watts is an inspirational children’s story about a racing greyhound who goes by the name of Shadow Chaser. Chase is his pet name. As the story unfolds, Chase eventually endures an injury that may end up threatening his professional career. The story also focuses on a family who is starting to come back to life from their own personal tragedy. It is a story told with great emotion and will bring you into all sorts of situations that will leave you feeling impassioned.

Being that I’m an animal lover of all breeds, mixes, and forms, I really fell in love with Chasing Shadows by Kerry Watts. The courage that we see in animals is often very indicative of the strength that we sometimes search for in ourselves. And in this book, I do feel that there is a definite correlation between the family and Chase. Although I am not a big supporter of dog racing, I did feel a great love for this book. I connected on a whole other level with the family in this book; it was as though I could reach out and touch them, and they would be there. The dialogue was very realistic. There were moments when I completely lost myself in the pages, which I feel should be the aim of every writer, and Kerry Watts did just that for me. I recommend it for all animal lovers, or those readers who simply enjoy a book that has a real message behind it.
