Synopsis: 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.
 
Chasing Brooklyn is an absolutely gorgeous. Granted Im not a fan for the poetry style novels, but at least this one still sounded like a book. It hardly sounded like poetry. This was just beautiful. Granted I also didnt really like the whole, "Ghosts trying to help them thing." But still the idea was nice. Okay so I did get a bit annoyed since her name was Brooklyn. And I only skimmed the summary so I just assumed Nico was a girl until he did things that distinguished him as a boy. And 200 pages in they said he was a boy. But that annoyed. The book could have used a little more detail. But it was still a nice story.
