Lovely Bones - A Book Review

My local book club is reading Lovely Bones for this month's selection. I wasn't exactly thrilled when it was picked due to the nature of the subject but boy was I wrong (you won't hear that from me much), this was a great book!
The Lovely Bones is a 2002 novel by Alice Sebold. It's the story of a teenage girl who, after being brutally raped and murdered, watches from heaven as her family and friends go on with their lives, while she herself comes to terms with her own death.
This sounded very depressing to me and as a mother, the subject matter broke my heart BUT the book sucks you in as you see how the family deals with this tragedy and how life goes on. I say if you haven't read it yet, you need to pick it up.
This is also being made into a movie.

I read this book before I had kids (and loved it). I don't know that I could read it now...an emotionally tough book.
I just read her memoir a few months ago. Difficult to read, also, but good!

the book sounds emotionally draining. I'd probably have cried my eyes out if i read it. i admire your courage.

I loved this book too! I'm looking forward to the movie that comes out early next year.

I read this book before I had kids, and I really liked it. It's one that maybe I could reread.
