I agree with previous comments that the book was somewhat predictable, however...any 15 year old girl in a heart break/heart ache situation is going to be predictable to a certain degree, so I think it was a very accurate portrayal of Ava and can see many young women easily identifying with her. I did not realize it was written in verse when I placed the hold, but found it to be the perfect style for telling this story.

This book was a little cheesy for me. "I am your helium." then the guy gives her a ballon. worst pick up line ever. i laughed so hard. i read 24/7. this book... is laughable.

I was so surprised to find out this book was written by Lisa Schroeder. She has written my favorite book "It's Raining Cupcakes". I am excited to read it. Overall I think it is a very big change in genre on Lisa's part!!

I love verse novels, especially ones by Lisa Schroeder, but this one was okay. The story line was really predictable.

If you like Elle Hopkins' books Crank, Glass, etc.. you might like this title very much. It has the same poetic writting style.

I didn't really like this book. Very predictable, and just not that great.

This book was different. I like how Lisa Schroeder wrote the book as poems.

This was a very good book! It's written in verse form, which I've never read before, so I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the words flowed. The story is very real and touching, and may make some readers cry! Since it's in verse form, it's very short, and only took me one night to finish. Whenever I wasn't reading this book, I was thinking about it and wishing I could. I found it to be very similar to A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb and Willow by Julia Hoban, both of which I highly recommend!

VERY VERY VERY sad book. A great work, but makes you cry. :(

I read this book in about an hour and a half. It didn't have a lot of detail and it was written in verse form (similar to poems) not a style that I usually enjoy, but it was quite touching for such a short book. It wasn't sappy but true. Also not the crumby Twilight 'un-dead' type thing. A true love story about facing the pain of loss.

When Ava's boyfriend dies, she can only blame herself. And then, she feels his presence in her house: she smells him, he speaks to her in her head and he gives her little signs that he's there. She doesn't want to leave the house, because that means leaving him. But can she really have a relationship with a boy who's dead?
