The Lovely Bones (2002)




Susie Salmon (like the fish) gets raped and killed as a child by a neighbor at the beginning of the book. Ascended to her own version of Heaven, she watches and talks to us about her family, her killer and her friends - their thoughts and actions, how they come to terms with this "brutal" event in their life, and how some people never really let go and find different ways to accommodate their daughter/sister/friend's murder in their lives.
