BOOK REVIEW: “The Lovely Bones”

I think this is the book that has made me cry the most out of all of the books that I’ve read. It was an emotional journey to read the terrifying and horrific experience of the main character. Despite what some people think about the book, I found that there was character development with Susie. After her death she was angry at her killer, she was angry that she was not able to be with her family and live her life, but she was able to move on in the end. I think there is a change in her mindset that allows her to feel free and finally go to heaven. It’s not a perfect book, but it is both sad and hopeful, a better approach than just writing a sad story without any optimism or hope in its resolution.
