You Are Not Here by Samantha Schutz
Annaleah and Brian had something special -- Annaleah is sure of it. When they were together, they didn't need anyone else. It didn't matter that it was secret. All that mattered was what they shared.
And then, out of nowhere, Brian is killed in an accident. And while everyone else has their role in the grieving process, Annaleah finds herself living on the outside of it, unacknowledged and lonely. How can you recover from a loss no one will let you have?
It sounds really good and I think it's written in verse. It's published October 2010 by Scholastic (US).

If it's written in verse, I'm so there!
Aww this looks like a heart-breakingly beautiful story!
I want to read that too :)
It sounds a bit like Twenty Boy Summer... Not the verse part but the blurb part.
oh wow, I've just read my first verse novel and loved it! Cover is so pretty too.
Yay for verse novels, I love them! I'll definitely be looking out for more news on this one now.
It sounds really sad. I'm not that fond of verse novels, but it does sounds really nice. :)
Love love love that cover! Thanks for sharing this one. I hadn't heard of it before.
Ooo cool and I just love the cover. FAB find!
Thanks everyone! Check my site in late Sept/early Oct for a contest to tie into the book's launch.
