Brooklyn can't sleep anymore. She has nightmares about her friend Gabe that died of an overdose. Her boyfriend Lucca died a year ago. She no idea what Gabe wants and why isn't Lucca in her dream. Nico is always running. He is trying to escape the pain that he has from missing his brother Lucca. Then he starts receiving messages from his dead brother. He needs to help Brooklyn. 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.
I found Brooklyn to be a likable character. Her grief was easy to relate to. Nico was really sweet. I enjoyed the chemistry between both of them. I preferred Nico's voice to Brooklyn. The plot was really well written. I love how Schroeder writes verse and they are such great books. This book is a companion to I Heart You and You Haunt Me. I think that if you liked Lisa Schroeder's other books, you will enjoy Chasing Brooklyn. it is also a quick and sweet read.
