Susie Salmon is just like any other young girl. She wants to be beautiful, adores her charm bracelet and has a crush on a boy from school. There's one big difference though – Susie is dead. Now she can only observe while her family manage their grief in their different ways. Her father, Jack is obsessed with identifying the killer. Her mother, Abigail is desperate to create a different life for herself. And her sister, Lindsay is discovering the opposite sex with experiences that Susie will never know. Susie is desperate to help them and there might be a way of reaching them... Alice Sebold's novel The Lovely Bones is a unique coming-of-age tale that captured the hearts of readers throughout the world. Award-winning playwright Bryony Lavery has adapted it for this unforgettable play about life after loss.

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!

This was recommended to me by my mum. I tried to read it a few years ago and didn’t get far but gave it another go and it was an okay story, fucked up

I love the book. It always makes me cry. In terms of writing, it conveys the characters and their journey through grief perfectly. In terms of subject matter, be aware that there is the rape and murder of a girl and the consequences for her family and community, so it may be triggering to some people. Reader discretion is adviced.

I love the interesting pov this book takes on. I don’t really think about the dead all that much so it was cool to explore that. although “her breasts were perfect small cups” was a description that kinda made me cringe. I understand it’s because susie will never get to grow up now that she’s dead but like it’s still weird to me.

Evoking, perfectly dancing between light-hearted and emotionally loaded.
