Book Review: I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schoeder
Ava loses her boyfriend Jackson in a terrible accident at the
beginning of the summer. She blames herself for his death and
can’t cope with her loss.
When she has hit her rock bottom, Jackson starts sending her messages from the dead. After she gets
her boyfriend back...well sort of
gets him back...she can hardly talk
herself into leaving. That is until
Jackson becomes annoying and she
wants more than a wordless, touchless, guilt-ridden relationship.
How will Ava cope with this
tragic incident? Buy the book and
read it to find out!

Video Game of the Week:
This week’s game of the week is Diablo II, a top-down style dungeon crawler, co-op PC
game. It was produced by Blizzard Entertainment, the creators of World of Warcraft.
The story of this game is to defeat Diablo, The Lord of Terror, and brother of Mephisto,
The Lord of Hatred, and Baal, The Lord of Destruction. The game is played in IV acts
in the original game, with a fifth act added in the Expansion Pack, or “DLC” called
“The Lord of Destruction”, in which you hunt down Baal and his minions. Each act
contains six quests that must be completed to advance. There are five characters that are
playable in the game, with an extra two
added in the expansion. Players can
choose to be a Sorceress, Paladin, Barbarian, Necromancer, and Amazon, with
the expansion adding the acrobatic Assassin and shape-shifting Druid. I find
that this is an amazing game, and
enjoy playing it with my friends.
