Restless souls and empty hearts
Brooklyn can't sleep. Her boyfriend, Lucca, died only a year ago, and now her friend Gabe has just 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 visiting her dreams.
Nico can't stop. He's always running, trying to escape the pain of losing his brother, Lucca. But when Lucca's ghost begins leaving messages, telling Nico 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.

A quick, captivating book.

Loved it from the minute I started it. It was so sad, so sorrowful.

Nobody would want to be in Brooklyn's shoes. She lost her boyfriend. Her boyfriend's brother reaches to her because Brooklyn's boyfriend haunted Nick (his brother) to help Brooklyn.

Then Brooklyn gets absorbed into Nico's life. She becomes part of it. And I can't tell you anymore because that would be spoiling it.

But seriously, I finished this book in one sitting. I just couldn’t let it down. I wanted to know how it will end even though it is predictable but still.

It was written in verse which helped with the fast pacing. I loved the characters; they were so rounded and well-written which makes them memorable.

This book was scoping over a girl who had changed since the death of her boyfriend. And Lisa did an amazing job building up the story with perfect sequence.
It was just awesome, people. I want to read more from Lisa.

Tata for now
