** spoiler alert ** Suzanne Salmon was a girl who got killed when she was 13 years old. She's speaking and watching the earth from the heaven.
She observed her family, her former crush and her murderer from above.

This is a story about Salmon's family in the eye of Sussie Salmon, 13 year of aged after her dissapearance.
How her family and those who closed to her were struggling to overcome with awful tragedy that happened to her.

For me this book is quite unique because I haven't really read a book like this, of course Desperate houseviwes serial is quite similiar- where Marry-ane is seeing all her neighbourhood from "the other place".
First few chapters were very intriguing but at the middle it was quite tedious up to last few chapters.

Eventhough the police were not be able to captured the murderer but I think in real life these things do happen when not every bad guy has the right punishment, after all sometimes life is not fair.
