The Lovely Bones

Alice Sebolds's book "The Lovely Bones" is about a girl, who was murdered and who now looks at her family from her heaven. The story is of course in the beginning depressing, but the author is trying to find some light and follows that path of telling the story. At the same time Alice express herself in a poetic way, it's beautiful.

However sometime scenes were not so good, especially one when Susie's soul entered the body of her classmate to make love to a man, with whom she fell in love as a teen. It was very unexpected and unwonted scene for me.

In a whole, book is worth of reading. I think it is dedication to all missing and murdered girls and woman. "The Lovely Bones" creates awareness of a problem. It reminds us who are missing among us.
