THE LOVELY BONES

Something of a surprise sensation when released, Sebold's THE LOVELY BONES imagines a murdered girl narrating not only from and about the afterlife, but also the aftermath of her killing on her family, friends, and neighbors. Heartbreaking and beautiful, with exceptional provenance.
