"The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold
This is a really good read. I couldn't put The Lovely Bones down once I started it. Told from the point of view of the murdered girl, it chronicles the family's ups and downs after her murder. Susie tells us about her first days in heaven,how she watches over her family and friends wishing she could tell them who her killer is and wanting to comfort her family , but being unable to. It's a touching, warm, sometimes funny tale of what happens to her family after Susie's brutal murder.
I highly recommend The Lovely Bones
