The Lovely Bones
by Alice Sebold

Date Completed: August 2nd, 2005

The same co-worker who recommended Tell No One recommended this one to me. This one is somewhat of a murder mystery told from the perspective of the child who was murdered and who is now in heaven looking down on her family. The reader is aware of the circumstances of her murder and her killer and shares in the same hopes of the narrator that her killer will be caught and brought to justice. The novel shows the unique perspective of the victim in heaven watching her family cope with the emotions of her murder.
