The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

hey guys, so i have been reading this book, the lovely bones on and off for about a month and a half because i kept putting down to feed my Twilight addiction. But i really wanted to finish this book because the story was so good!

it's basically told through the eyes of a 14 year old girl who was brutally raped and murdered. she's up in "her heaven" watching her friends and family cope and go on with their lives as they can.

there's not a lot i can say about it without feeling like i'm ruining something. but i can tell you that towards the end it did in fact make me cry a little... i'm really glad i ended up finishing it.. i read over 150 pages in the last two days to finish. but it was worth it. because it's really good. i kind of really suck at summaries.. but yeah.. there it is.. :)

next up... alice sebold wrote lucky: a memoir... it's about her life as a child and then when she was raped at 18. and the aftermath of coping with the horrible incident and trying to find the guy who did it.

ok bye.
