I Heart You, You Haunt Me

What would you do if you’re boyfriend died but you still felt him near you?  In “I heart you, you haunt me” by Lisa Schroeder, Ava’s boyfriend Jackson loves her too much to leave her, even after his death.  How can Ava get on with her life when she still feels guilty for Jackson’s tragic accident?

This novel in verse can pack a punch with each brief poem, like “Colorless”  from chapter one, depicting Jackson’s funeral:

I Heart You, You Haunt Me“And then,
beyond the flowers,
beneath the stained-glass window,
beside the cross,
I see
the white casket.

I see
red, burning love
disappear
forever.”
