Yesterday was opening day for the film ‘The Lovely Bones’ based on Alice Sebold’s (Lucky, The Almost Moon) much-loved novel of the same name. I loved this book. Everybody loved this book. If you haven’t read it you missed something amazing.
The Lovely Bones is the story of a young girl with mousey brown hair named Susie Salmon, portrayed by Saoirse Ronan (The City of Ember). Susie, murdered at only 14 years old, tells the story of her death and its effect on her family from ‘her heaven’.
