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.
I picked up "I Heart You, You Haunt Me" from the library on a whim. The book is definitely different, written in verse. It was a really quick read, I finished it in about an hour. This story is about Ava, who lost her boyfriend in a tragic accident. We read about how she deals with her grief, and about how her boyfriend is still 'around'. I enjoyed this book, especially reading how she copes, and finally, moves on. Oh, and the cover is pretty gorgeous!
I'm looking forward to reading Ms. Schroeders's next book. :)
