#27. The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold

Description from Amazon.ca:
When we first meet Susie Salmon, she is already in heaven. As she looks down from that strange new place she tells us, in the fresh and spirited voice of a fourteen-year-old, a tale that is both haunting and full of hope. Susie watches life continuing after her brutal death: her loved ones holding out hope she'll be found, her killer covering his tracks. As months pass without leads, she sees her family contorted by loss. With compassion, longing, and a growing understanding, she sees them face the worst -- then, in time, pass through grief and begin to mend.

This was recommended to me by (and a gift from) fellow bloggers Red and *Asterisk. A quick read but extremely well written. I ran the gamut of emotions while enjoying this - I cried more times than I'd like to admit, I laughed, and I wanted to throw up. It was incredible and I highly recommend it.
