"I Heart You, You Haunt Me"
Girl meets boy. Girl loses boy. Girl gets boy back... ...sort of. Ava can't see him or touch him, unless she's dreaming. She can't hear his voice, except for the faint whispers in her mind. Most would think she's crazy, but she knows he's here. Jackson. The boy Ava thought she'd spend the rest of her life with. He's back from the dead, as proof that love truly knows no bounds.

He's here, in this room, right now. Jackson. Ava knows he's dead, and that it's impossible, but that doesn't stop her from being able to smell his unique, sandalwood aftershave. Or seeing his image in her mirror, hearing his words in her head, and finding him in her dreams. Her boyfriend is a ghost, and it's Ava's fault he's dead to begin with. So now what? Ride the waves of Ava's emotions, sometimes rippling, sometimes crashing, in this haunting book. Written in verse for maximum impact, the book grips readers and keeps them turning page after page, waiting for a release that never comes. I know, because I'm still waiting to be released from the clutch of feelings invoked by Ava's tale. That's why I'm nominating this one for the Gold Star Award for Excellence in the TeensReadToo Hall of Fame. This award is reserved for books that we'll read again and again. A definite for me in this case. *Gold Star Award Winner!show moreby TeensReadToo
When I bought it I wasn't ready to read it in few hours but it was so compelling that I couldn't put it away and than innovative manner used to write it was so inspiring and really easy not only to read but also to enjoy and understand. This book is suitable for readers who don't like long hours sitting and reading although it is so inspiring that will take over every kind of readers attention. "Memories might keep him alive. But they might kill me." Mystical story about passionate love and how that is ruined by ones death. It reveals pain of loosing your lover but in the same time it shows how sometimes annoying it is if you can't get over it and live on. It shows affection and how sometimes the ones whom you trusted might just not be there when you need them the most. It's about understanding and misunderstanding, about relationships and trying to live on, to survive. I cried a lot reading this book. I usually put paper peaces between pages to find later on great quotes however I didn't put any in this book but not because there weren't good quotes but because there was so much good sentences that there wouldn't be any need to put paper in almost every page. Everything seems to be in order and even song titles are so right like they were written specially for situation not the opposite. "When you meet someone so different from yourself, in a good way, you don't even have to kiss to have fireworks go off." And exactly like that this book made me feel, it started fireworks without hesitation.show moreby Madara
A quick read. Set out in verse which actually really suits this story. It is wonderfully descriptive within a small amounts of words, the words literally dance across the page. I actually cried from the start of this story; the images and emotions evoked by the funeral scene brought back memories of losing my mum a few years ago. Beautifully written so I experienced complete empathy with the feelings of loss, grief and guilt. The references to emotions as colours was inspiring and easy to relate to. It reminded me of Ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley in parts. A great book for anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one.show moreby Emma Davies
