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.
Lisa Schroeder is another verse novelist I absolutely love, and I'm looking forward to seeing what her first non-verse novel will be like. Her last book, The Day Before, was one of my 2011 favourites and I can't wait to find out what Falling for You is like. It's just a shame it's not published until 2013 (*sob*). Lisa is a great contemporary author and, as an added bonus, her books always have lovely covers!
