I Heart You, You Haunt Me

I Heart You, You Haunt Me
Author: Lisa Schroeder
Reviewer: Kurtis

the love of your life
right before your eyes.

You think:
I’ll never get
to tell him
what I wanted.

There’s so many things
I wanted to do.

It’s as if
your life…
will never be the same.

he comes back.

This is exactly what happens to Ava in Lisa Schroeder’s I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME. This was a particularly interesting story, creatively told in verse. It’s the story of a girl who struggles to move on from her dead boyfriend, Jackson. Of course, who wouldn’t have a hard time forgetting when he is there every day to remind her. It becomes even harder when she meets a “real” boy and Jackson becomes overly jealous for her attention. Her only way to move on from this ghastly situation is to let go and not blame herself for his death. But she can’t bring herself to do it.
I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME, is a gripping story of love and remorse. I would definitely recommend this one.
