Seven YAs that look at life through a camera lens

At the B&N Teen Blog Natalie Zutter tagged seven Young Adult books that look at life through a camera lens, including:
The Appearance of Annie van Sinderen, by Katherine Howe

A camera is part of the meet-cute in Howe’s novel, jumping between a modern-day ghost story and the 1800s-set mystery that created said ghost. Aspiring filmmaker Wes, in a summer program at NYU, meets the ethereal Annie while filming a séance in the East Village. At first he only sees her through his camera; it’s when he meets her again, in real life, that a mystery told on dual timelines starts to emerge. Complicating matters is Maddie, the equally alluring, flesh-and-blood girl Wes also meets at the séance.
