The lovely bones by Alice Sebold

RECOMMENDATIONS/FILM                                                                                           (Staff, 7-9, 10-12)

The lovely bones is a surprisingly powerful story.

I wonder if the film is as good as the book.

 

Bookalicious gives just enough of an overview:

The story follows fourteen year old Susie Salmon from her after life as she deals with her rape and brutal murder. She resents being killed and wishes her murder to be brought to justice. She also wishes to relive her first kiss and have many more, she wishes of course to have grown up. We watch her family crumble under the pressure of having a child murdered, her school friends grow up without her. How everything evolves except for Susie who is stuck just watching waiting for her murderer to be captured.
