I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME by Lisa Schroeder

Ava and Jackson were in love. She knew he was special the first time she saw him. They had a great time together. There were tender moments and happy times. Jackson knew just how to tease and entertain Ava.

Now Jackson is gone or at least that's what Ava thought. There was a terrible accident and a funeral, but Ava is convinced she just felt Jackson's touch, and she is pretty sure she may have just seen him reflected behind her in the mirror. As the days go by, Ava becomes more certain that Jackson's ghost is visiting her.

Plagued with guilt as a result of Jackson's death, Ava doesn't think she will ever be able to carry on. Her family and friends support her and do everything they can to bring her back to the world of the living, but Jackson's ghostly presence is pulling her in another direction.

Lisa Schroeder's I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME is a captivating novel. Written in verse, it is a fast read that commands the reader's attention. Emotions like guilt, grief, and aching sadness swirl around the characters, but an underlying current of love and hope carry a message that readers will gladly take with them beyond the final page.
