Lovely Bones
by Alice Sebold
From The Jacket:Alice Sebold's luminous first novel, one of the most celebrated litery debuts of recent seasons, that builds out of a family's grief the most hopeful and joyful of stories.
This book was a page turner for me. The story is heart wrenching and emotionally gripping. I surprised myself when I ended up likening it as it deals with a very hard topic especially if you have children, however Ms Sebold has written this story in such a beautifully sensitive manner I couldn’t help but be drawn in. Definitely put this one on your TBR list.

I highly recommend this book. After hearing it dealt with the murder of a young girl, I was reluctant to read it. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Emotionally driven and thought provoking.

I agree, an amazing book. The author's simple elegant writing draws you in and the compelling, deep characters keep you there. The beginning of the book is a little rough, but stick with it, it doesn't last long.

This book is great! The beginning may be upsetting for some people and is a little bit graphic. Once you get past that, you are left with a truly wonderful read. This is being made into a movie soon.
