I like to let books choose me instead of me choosing them So when The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold came out in 2002 and people couldnt be quiet about it I tried to ignore everyone telling me Youve absolutely got to read this book About a year later I snagged a copy at my familys used bookstore I took the hard cover book without a dust jacket home but I still didnt feel like the book was ready for me to read it A week ago I walked by my bookshelf ready for something new to read and this blue book seemed to be calling my name It was time to pick it up And once I started the story of Susie Salmon there was no putting this book down Susies Story Looking Down From Heaven Susie begins telling her story from heaven and keeps no secrets from her readers Instead she tells her heartbreaking story and makes her life before her death the details of her murder and what happens to her devastated family after her murder unfold before the readers eyes Along with Susie the reader floats with her between the life she left on earth and her new life in her own heaven At fourteen Susie was far from ready to leave her life behind her After her murder she constantly worries about her father mother sister brother and even her dog from heaven She cannot leave them behind so she watches them daily But Susie isnt only worried about her family She worries if her murderer will attack someone else Shes desperate to try and help her family and Detective Len discover the neighbor who murdered her Susie also misses Ray a boy who had a crush on her And then there is Ruth a strange girl that Susie didnt really know when she lived but connected briefly with when her soul collided with Ruth after her
