The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold

"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.

This novel is centered around Susie Salmon’s death. No one has any proof of who killed Susie. No body, no traces, no witnesses. The only thing hinting in the direction of the murderer being a fathers intuition, there is no way the murderer can be brought to justice. Susie’s family is torn apart after her death. Her mother is unable to handle the news, and her mother steps in to help the family in a way she never has before. Through Susie’s death the Salmon family is brutally torn apart while Susie herself is watching, unable to affect any of the events unfolding on earth. While Susie is watching, her family fights for healing, and tries to restore the relationships that died with Susie. "
