I got this at a yard sale. I'd heard that it was a huge best-seller, so I thought I'd give it a try. It's an intriguing book with a unique premise: the main character, 14-year-old Susie Salmon, has been murdered and is narrating the book from heaven. This really is an interesting novel, and I got really wrapped up in the story of the Salmon family, their struggles with grief, and the murder investigation which surrounded Susie's death. The progression is interesting, and the end is satisfying... a good summer read.

I gave it to Jesse when I was done with it.
