#27. The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold

Description from
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.
