The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold
With the movie coming out I decided to give this book a go and see if the movie will be worth it. It's the story of a fourteen year old girl (Susie Salmon) who is raped and murdered. We start off with the murder then the story is Susie watching down from her heaven at her family and those around them. Watching them mourn and move on with their lives, while she comes to terms with her own murder. The book makes you question if that neighbor who you think is weird, is actually a killer. I found the book good, yet I probably would not read it again.
