Trailer Tuesdays

Trailer Tuesdays is a feature I started in July of last year, meant to be somewhat like Waiting on Wednesday but in book trailer format. Every week I'll feature a book trailer of an upcoming or recently released book that I want to read. I stopped doing this because I got somewhat bored with it, but I've decided to bring it back because I miss doing it.

This week's featured book is Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder, which was just released in January.

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.

The cover is so simple, but beautiful. And I think the plot sounds so intriguing! It's written in verse, which I'm usually not a huge fan of (with the exception of Ellen Hopkins), but I really want to give this book a try.
