The Lovely Bones

by Alice Sebold

4.4/5

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.

“Murderers are not monsters, they're men. And that's the most frightening thing about them.”

Alice Sebold, The Lovely Bones
