I don’t believe in originality. You take inspiration from whatever moves you and you find your voice in those things.

The front cover of le book. See it's not overly thick. You can finish reading it in 1 day.

The Summary:
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.

I actually was very surprised at how well the story flowed, even though it was written in verse. Sometimes you expect stories to be broken up due to the verse, but that was not the case with Lisa Schroeder’s book. The storyline is simple, not complicated. The boyfriend died, girlfriend felt guilty, the spirit of the boyfriend refuse to go to the other side until his deferred business on Earth is settled...okay I'm becoming a spoiler. But yeah it is an interesting book despite written in verse. At first, my friend though that I was reading a book of poems when she saw the page but naah, it's so much easier to finish a book like this. I might say that this is a pageturner, although I'm not a chickflick novels enthusiast myself. 
My favourite verse in the book
He's looking at a newspaper.
She's looking at him.
She says something.
He looks at her.
He smiles.
She smiles.
