I Heart You, You Blow Me Away

I Heart You, You Haunt Me
By: Lisa Schroeder
Reported by: Juli Helms

Girl meets boy.

Girl loses boy.

Girl gets boy back...

...sort of.

Ava can't see him or touch him, unless she's dreaming. She can't hear his voice, except for the faint whispers in her mind. Most would think she's crazy, but she knows he's here.

Jackson. The boy Ava thought she'd spend the rest of her life with. He's back from the dead, as proof that love truly knows no bounds.

-Summary from Goodreads

I've never read
a verse novel

I'm             n
a w a y.

Lisa Schroeder writes with a lyrical, haunting prose that fits perfectly into the tone of the story. I've read books about girls in love with their ghost boyfriends (SHADE & SHIFT), so this concept wasn't new for me, but to read it in verse definitely added a new layer to the story that really touched me.

I love how Ms. Schroeder plays with words, like
It really adds a special touch to the story that makes it unique, despite its concept. The characters really spoke out to me as well. I felt connected to them and I wanted to fly through this book at the same time I wanted to savor every word.

I Heart You, You Haunt Me, is, in a word, beautiful. I'll definitely be reading more Lisa Schroeder books in the future.
