When we first meet 14-year-old Susie Salmon, she is already in heaven. This was before milk carton photos and public service announcements, she tells us; back in 1973, when Susie mysteriously disappeared, people still believe d these things didn't happen. In the sweet, untroubled voice of a precociou s teenage girl, Susie relates the awful events of her death and her own adj ustment to the strange new place she finds herself. It looks a lot like her school playground, with the good kind of swing sets. With love, longing, a nd a growing understanding, Susie watches her family as they cope with thei r grief, her father embarks on a search for the killer, her sister undertak es a feat of amazing daring, her little brother builds a fort in her honor and begin the difficult process of healing. In the hands of a brilliant nov elist, this story of seemingly unbearable tragedy is transformed into a sus penseful and touching story about family, memory, love, heaven, and living.

It's a knockout." --Time "Destined to become a classic in the vein of To Kill a Mockingbird. . . I l oved it." --Anna Quindlen "A novel that is painfully fine and accomplished." --Los Angeles Times "The Lovely Bones seems to be saying there are more important things in life on earth than retribution. Like forgiveness, like love." --Chicago Tribune.

But life is not quite finished with Susie yet ..."The Lovely Bones" is a luminous and astonishing novel about life a nd death, forgiveness and vengeance, memory and forgetting - but, above all , about finding light in the darkest of places. 'Spare, beautiful and bruta l prose ..."The Lovely Bones" is compulsive enough to read in a single sitt ing, brilliantly intelligent, elegantly constructed and ultimately intrigui ng.' - "The Times". 'Moving and compelling ...It will put an imperceptible but stealthily insistent hold on you. I sat down in the morning to read the first couple of pages; five hours later, I was still there, book in hand, transfixed.' - Maggie O'Farrell, "Sunday Telegraph"
