This was my first encounter with a novel in verse. It opened my eyes to my own possibilities. Beautiful words describing grief and how it's different for everyone. Beautiful words describing the journey to overcome that grief. Beautiful words describing a path to healing and unexpected love. And now, the book complete, I have my own stories floating flittering forming that must be written I may just try my own novel in verse.

Chasing brooklyn is an amazing love story, read the book. Turn every page realizing she lost her boyfriend and hes telling his brother to get her out of grief and live life. Would you write letters to your Dead Boyfried? Read the book, dont forget to keep turnin the page:)

this book starts out with some excellent lauguage and images involving brooklyn, nico, lucca and gabe, who are all extremely important chracters in each others lives. Brooklyn starts the book off talking about luccas death, then two pages in the perspective switches to nico, Luccas living brother. He talks from his point of view on the story, then just a few entries in, Gabe, a friend of Lucca's dies of a drug overdose. This hurts both Brooklyn and Nico, and they begin haviing strange dreams. Nico dreams of Lucca, and Brooklyn dreams of Gabe, who haunts her in her sleep. Lucca only wants Brookly to be happy, and is trying to get Nico to help her. Nico has trouble figuring out how to help brooklyn. Gabe's dreams are haunting and realistic, and brooklyn has a hard time shaking them off. The book strings itself together in a series of wonderful and quirky poems. An excellent read, I recommend it highly. Dmitri Grigorieff Castel A5

Beautiful. This book was really good. I loved how it explains 2 point of views of how they deal with death of loved ones, from their friend, brother, or girlfriend.

The cover I especially like. This was a sad but really good story about two people trying to cope, all the while reaching out.

I thought this book was amazing. It was beautifully written and I LOVED how it was written in the poem format! I thought both Brooklyn ad Nico's charavters were wonderfulky established d definitely had some character change throughout the whoe book. I thought the author did an amazing job using the poetic format for very good descriptibe pieves. Also, I love how it wasn't a sappy romance novethat made you want to chuck it at a wall!! Overall, I loved this book sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much, thus warding it the honor of five beautiful stars!!!!

I couldnt put it down. I started it and finished it in one night and im reading it again. This is a must have. The whole thing made me bite my nails the entire tme it was so intense. I could relate to the tragic loss of a large amount of friends in one night. Feels as though they pushed me to be happier then i was. Would reccomend to anyone!!!
