Review: "I Heart You, You Haunt Me" Lisa Schroeder

Date Read- July 2009

Debut novels can sometimes make or break the author (not in all cases though). Lisa Schroeder's debut novel for young adults is nothing short of amazing! When Ava loses her boyfriend Jackson, her world has fallen apart. The guilt and pain of the day he died still weighs heavy on her soul. But on an ordinary summer's day, Ava feels a strange presence. Jackson. She can't believe that he has returned from the dead to show her that love can know no barriers. In all "I Heart You, You Haunt Me" is a painful and beautifully written free verse debut!

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed this one! My daughter loves this book and others by this author. I've just started delving into the world of verse novels, so I will have to try this one out sometime soon!

I've heard great things about this one, and I love the author's Twitter presence. I'm not convinced I like verse novels yet - Ellen Hopkins is great, but I haven't found many others I enjoyed - but I'll have to give this one a shot. Thanks for the review! =)
