Review: Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder
A quick read. Set out in verse which actually really suits this story. It is wonderfully descriptive within a small amounts of words, the words literally dance across the page. I actually cried from the start of this story; the images and emotions evoked by the funeral scene brought back memories of losing my mum a few years ago. Beautifully written so I experienced complete empathy with the feelings of loss, grief and guilt. The references to emotions as colours was inspiring and easy to relate to. It reminded me of Ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley in parts. A great book for anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one.
