The Lovely Bones
Availability: In Stock
My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973. My murderer was a man from our neighbourhood. My mother liked his border flowers, and my father talked to him once about fertilizer. This is Susie Salmon, speaking from heaven - which looks a lot liker her school playground, with the good kind of swing sets, counsellors to help newcomers adjust, and friends to room with. Everything Suzie wants appears as soon as she thinks of it - except the one thing she wants most: to be back with the people she loved on earth. Watching from her place in heave, Susie sees her happy, surburban family devasted by her death, isolated even from one another as they each try to cope with their terrible loss alone. Over the years, her friends and siblings grow up, fall in love, do all the things she never had the chance to do herself. But life is not quite finished with Susie yet . . .
