In the 1970s, Susie Salmon is a young teen who falls victim to her neighbor, a psychotic child predator. Brutally, the man assaults and murders her in the opening of this book. Thus, Susie narrates The Lovely Bones from beyond the grave, telling the story of her beloved family after she “goes missing,” as she waits for them to discover her death and bring her killer to justice. A unique novel which takes an admittedly odd turn towards the end, but kept me reading all the same.
