Novels by Lisa Schroeder




Lisa Schroeder tackles serious subjects in these three books -- death, suicide, depression, fear, anger, divorce, step-families, but not without hope and love. Her first two books are told from a teen girl's point of view, the third from both a boy's and a girl's in alternating chapters. Schroeder writes in verse form with thoughts, actions and dialogue speeding along like they would in real life. Extraneous words are absent, leaving a great deal of white space on each page that gives the words that are present additional impact. I read each book twice, the second time more slowly to really allow the individual words and the characters' struggles sink in. These books were hard to read because of their content, but beautifully written and true to life save for a touch of the supernatural.
