YALC Readathon Guest Post - Natasha Ngan

It's Friday already and there's only a couple of days left of the YALC Readathon. I hope you're all really enjoying taking part and have found some new UKYA favourites!

For today's guest post I've got the gorgeous Natasha Ngan here to share the character profiles of two characters from her upcoming book, The Memory Keepers. I'm always fascinated to learn about different writing processes and character development, so I hope you guys enjoy this post as much as I did!

The Memory Keepers by Natasha Ngan | Character Profiles: Seven and Alba

Seven is a thief with a difference - he steals downloadable memories from banks and memoriums to sell onto London's black market, trading secrets and hidden pasts for a chance at a future of his own. But one night, as Seven is breaking into a private memorium in a wealthy part of London, he is caught in the act by one of its residents: Alba, the teenage daughter of London's most famous criminal prosecutor. Instead of giving him away, Alba promises to keep Seven's secret - as long as he allows her to go memory-surfing herself. In doing so, they discover a hidden memory about Seven's past, revealing a shocking secret about his childhood, the government and a mysterious experiment known as The Memory Keepers ...

Now Seven and Alba will have to race against time to unlock the maze of The Memory Keepers - but can they keep themselves out of harm's way before the London Guard - and Alba's father - catches up with them?
