Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder (Book Review 2010-75)

Product Description

Restless souls and empty hearts Brooklyn can't sleep. Her boyfriend, Lucca, died only a year ago, and now her friend Gabe has just 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 visiting her dreams.
Nico can't stop. He's always running, trying to escape the pain of losing his brother, Lucca. But when Lucca's ghost begins leaving messages, telling Nico 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.

This is another wonderful book from author Lisa Schroeder. I love the lyrical quality to Schroeder's writing and this surpassed the her other two books, Far From You and I Heart You, You Haunt Me.
I wasn't expecting to be wowed by a book written in free verse, but the sparseness of words makes the story of overcoming grief even that much more special.  This is one of those stories that will stick with you long after you put down the book.
