The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

What I Loved: The writing in this story was so well-written and beautifully crafted.
How I Felt: Ugh, this was such a tear-jerker. WARNING: You will cry. This one will leave you emotionally wrecked. It’s totally worth it.
To Read or Not To Read: You must read this book. The angle that this book is written from just pulls you in.

Susie, murdered at 14, walks us through her murder. She shows us her family’s grief and the manhunt for the killer.

This story is heartbreaking as she watches her family handle the loss of her and all the questions as to what happened. It’s so easy to feel their loss with them.
