    It had a very boring and pointless ending.

    The book Chasing Brooklyn is mysterious and suspensful, but it was also a little confusing. It is a story where a young teenager is battling her love for two brother, but there’s only one problem. One of them is dead.Brooklyn’s true love had just died. It was the second trajedy within’ a year at her school. Soon after he died, his best friend just wanted to get away. He didn’t mean to kill himself, it was a complete accident. But he overdosed on drugs. Her true love’s best friend, Gabe, was haunting Brooklyn in her dreams, while her true love was haunting his own brother, telling him to make sure to keep Brooklyn safe and happy and to make sure she’s okay. Gabe is haunting Brooklyn’s dreams, only because he was trying to help her feel unafriad. All her true love wants is for her to be happy, but who will be the one to get her there?This book achieves my goal on what a book should be like a little bit, but I hated the ending. It was stupid and pointless, but other than that, it was okay.The book Chasing Brooklyn is mysterious and suspensful, but it was also a little comfusing. It is a story where a young teenager is battling her love for two brother, but there’s only one problem. One of them is dead.This may not be the best book I have read, however, you may enjoy it.

    Entertaining

    Brooklyn can't step away from death: just a year ago her boyfriend, Lucca, died and now her best friend Gabe has also died. Now Brooklyn can't sleep: Gabe's ghost won't leave her alone. Lucca's best friend, Nicco, who was also left behind by his death, is also being visited, but by Lucca himself. Nicco and Brooklyn find themselves reaching out for each other with messages being left for them from the Beyond. Afraid of what the other may think, they keep these messages to themselves. Only when these messages become unavoidable do they discover their true connection to each other.

    At first, I was tentative to read this book only because it is written in Verse. However, Lisa Schroeder's unique style of writing offers a new way of reading. I was quite pleased with the style and plot of this book. While I would have loved to have seen more character development, in all the characters, I can see why this is not possible while writing in Verse.

    I think all of Lisa Schroeder's books (as they are all written in Verse) are great for those who are tentative to read, particularly the Young Adult audience.
