Lisa Schroeder is one of my favorite authors and I adore all of her books. She’s honestly one of the best verse novel authors out there. I’m surprised her newest book Falling for You, which just released on January 1st, isn’t written in verse, but I’m also excited to read her prose. If you love her verse as much as I do, you’ll be happy to know that there’s still some poetry in this book 🙂
Summary (From Goodreads):
Rae’s always dreamed of dating a guy like Nathan. He’s nothing like her abusive stepfather—in other words, he’s sweet. But the closer they get, the more Nathan wants of her time, of her love, of her…and the less she wants to give.
As Rae’s affection for Nathan turns to fear, she leans on her friend Leo for support. With Leo, she feels lighter, happier. And possessive Nathan becomes jealous.
Then a tragedy lands Rae in the ICU. Now, hovering between life and death, Rae must find the light amid the darkness…and the strength to fight for life and the love she deserves.
