Chasing Brooklyn - Lisa Shroeder (1 ARC Tours)

Summary - Restless souls and empty hearts.

Brooklyn can’t sleep. Her boyfriend, Lucca died a year ago, and now their friend Gabe has died of an overdose. Every time she closes her eyes, Gabe's ghost is there, waiting for her. She has no idea what he wants or why it isn't Lucca chasing her through her dreams.

Nico can’t stop. He’s always running, trying so hard not to feel the pain of missing Lucca. But when he begins receiving messages from his dead brother, telling him to help Brooklyn, emotions come crashing to the surface.

As the nightmares escalate and the messages become relentless, Nico reaches out to Brooklyn. But neither of them can admit that they're being haunted. Until they learn to let each other in, not one soul will be able to rest

Review - There is only one word to describe how I thought about this book..... AMAZING. When I first received the book I didnt not realize that it was written in verse form, and to be honest almost all other books that i had read in verse were not exactly my favorites. Once I picked this one up though I had a hard time putting it down. I loved that you knew exactly how Brooklyn was feeling without needing a lot of detail. I loved everything about this book. All of the characters were amazing. The plot was good, somewhat predictable but at the same time you didn't know what was coming next.

This was the first novel I have read by Lisa and it has inspired me to read her others and any more to come in the future. The ways that she was able to capture all of the emotions of the characters in such few words, I found absolutely amazing. This is definitely one I would recommend to anyone!

I love your rating system!
Lisa is great, isn't she? She's so great with portraying emotions. For me it reminds me of being a teenager and I like that feeling. (I'm 28 :(
I can't wait to read more of her stuff though. She's also really nice and I can't wait until her next signing. I'm so lucky to live near her!
