Guide to Verse Novels: Lisa Schroeder

Lisa Schroeder is the author of three verse novels for young adults:

I Heart You, You Haunt Me.
From Goodreads: 
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.

You can read my review here and check out a preview of the book here ( via Google Book's preview). 

Far From You.
From Goodreads: 
Lost and alone...down the rabbit hole

Years have passed since Alice lost her mother to cancer, but time hasn't quite healed the wound. Alice copes the best she can, by writing her music, losing herself in the love of her boyfriend, and distancing herself from her father and his new wife.

But when a deadly snowstorm traps Alice with her stepmother and newborn half-sister, she'll face issues she's been avoiding for too long. As Alice looks to the heavens for guidance, she discovers something wonderful.

Perhaps she's not so alone after all...

Chasing Brooklyn.
From Goodreads:
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.

You can check out a preview of the book here ( via Simon & Schuster's browse inside).

Lisa Schroeder's fourth book, The Day Before is being published by Simon Pulse in June 2011

Lovely post, and great trailers. I've only read I Heart You, You Haunt Me out of these, and I loved it! Must find the others. :)

O I want to read them all. I think the only one I've read in verse was Heaven Looks Allot Like the Mall.
