This book was really sad, considering it's about a girl who was raped and murdered, but who is up in Heaven looking at her family from above. Even though the plot is filled with sadness since the girl can't experience life, this book is also filled with amazing elements. This is the first book I read that takes on a character's point of view from death. It was really interesting to see the character's point of view from Heaven and looking down on her family. This book was really sad, and it's hard to see how time still passes by after a loved one dies. Eventually, the family of the girl who died moves on with their own lives. I am really glad that I read this book, because it taught me to cherish my family and friends now, because time passes quickly and we cannot always be there for one another.
