Like I said when I reviewedChasing Brooklyn; I have fallen in love with Lisa Shroeder and am now reading all of her books. I realized since the last review that what I was calling prose writing is actually her writing in verse, though I guess they could be the same thing:)
I like that Lisa is writing about death and how teens deal with it. And also how most of them are haunted in the beginning of her books, but soon realize that they can't go on living like they were. Of course in both of her books that I have read, the ghosts are only sticking around to help the person. In I Heart You, You Haunt Me. We meet Ava, at almost 16 she is the perfect girl. She has best friends and the perfect boyfriend. She attends a "School's Out" party with her friends and boyfriend; Jackson. When Jackson is dared by Ava to jump from a cliff into the water, he of course does it.... Only no one expected to be attending his funeral....
The book starts off with Ava at the funeral and moves on from their. She has the usual haunting experiences, cold areas, items moved, radios turning on... And she just knows that it is Jackson as soon she feels him. Ava believes that Jackson is sticking around because she needs him, and so she slowly pulls away from everyone; afraid to leave the house because she knows that Jackson can't go with her. She is in a sense still dating Jackson in her mind and she almost refuses to give up and let go.
We meet Ava's ex-boyfriend Nick, who is trying to help her, but with still being in love with her, she only see's it as him trying to get back with her. Ava's parents finally just pack her off to the beach for the 4th of July, where she meets Lyric ( love the name!!), he's older than Ava; but she feels alive with him, normal in a way that she hasn't since Jackson passed. Of course, being Ava; she freaks out and runs, only to meet up with him again at a party. Turns out that Cali, Ava's friend is crushing on Lyric; though Lyric isn't really interested in Cali. He wants Ava, and after seeing her at the party, he realizes exactly who Ava is.
Without giving away the ending, let's just say that Ava realizes she must let go of Jackson, so that she can live again. I loved the book and it is one that will be added to my collection so that I can re-read it from time to time.

I started reading this series years ago, and when I found out I never ended up reading the last book, I decided it was about time I got to it. And let me tell you, I am so glad I did.
Lily is a people pleasing person who bites off way more than she can chew in an effort to make everybody happy, and honestly, that’s probably why I like her so much. After all, I can relate to her. This is a story about making sure you know what your priorities are, being honest with the people you care about, and not making promises you can’t keep. I think this story teaches some very good lessons, and if you just want to read a lighthearted book, I think you’ll really enjoy this book.
Also, I just wanted to mention that near the end of the book, the characters talk a little bit about the book they were reading for the club and allow me to fangirl for a moment because it’s ELLA ENCHANTED BY GAIL CARSON LEVINE. That is my favorite book in the whole world and I absolutely lost my mind when I read that part. Bless the author for included that in there, because I was beyond happy that I was reading a book where the characters in the book knew of and loved my favorite book.
Okay, my fangirl moment is done. Back to the actual review.
All I have to say is that this was a really great book and I’m really glad I decided to read it.
