The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Lovely Bones:

Growing up after the aftermath of my murder.

My favorite quote from the book:

"People grow up by living."

Questions to ponder while reading The Lovely Bones:

Can a family survive the murder of a child?

What do you hope to see from heaven?

My review of The Lovely Bones:

Children shouldn't die first.

Parental guilt is a crushing thing.

A surprisingly haunting story.
