About the book

3.8/5.0

"My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973." So begins the story of Susie Salmon, who is adjusting to her new home in heaven, a place that is not at all what she expected, even as she is watching life on earth continue without her -- her friends trading rumors about her disappearance, her killer trying to cover his tracks, her grief-stricken family unraveling. Out of unspeakable tragedy and loss, The Lovely Bones succeeds, miraculously, in building a tale filled with hope, humor, suspense, even joy.

I never read but this book is AMAZING!!! It’s about a girl who gets murdered/raped and her telling her story from heaven, and the process of how her family finds out what happens and how they deal with it - very sad story but very interesting!
