Review: I have my eye on this book for a while and finally had the opportunity to read it. I liked the prose format of the book which can either make or break a story for me but this one was really great. this book primarily dealt with the emotions and pain that Brooklyn and Nico are going through after all the death there high school has experienced. This book is a companion novel to Shroeder's earlier novel I heart you, you haunt me which I read a while back. I have to say that I enjoyed this book more, I thought the story and characters were more fleshed out and real in this book. My only problem was that not much happens in the way of plot, but as I said this book focuses more on the characters emotions.
I absolutely love the characters. I could relate to Brooklyn even though I have never expereinced anything like that, and was really sympathetic to her struggle. I thought Nico was the sweetest guy ever. The way he rose to the challenge of helping Brooklyn despite his own pain made me really like him.
Overall, I thought I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who likes this kind of story. This books makes me want to read Schroeder's other books.
