The Lovely Bones
By Alice Sebold

The person who is telling the story is a fourteen year old girl named Susie Salmon who was raped and murdered walking home from school in a corn feild by her neighbor George Harvey who she thought she could trust since he knows her parents.

I loved this book because it is told by a girl who is close to my age and I felt like I shared a few connections with her. I also like this book because the way the scence are describes makes you feel like you are actually there in the book. I found myself hooked on this book and I liked it alot better then the movie.

Alice Sebold the author of The Lovely Bones.

She has written many novels such as Lucky and The Almost Moon.

The setting of the book takes place mostly in Pennsylvania in a town called Norristown.

Quotes

“Murderers are not monsters, they're men. And that's the most frightening thing about them.”

“The dead are never exactly seen by the living, but many people seem acutely aware of something changed around them. They speak of a chill in the air. The mates of the deceased wake from dreams and see a figure standing at the end of thier bed, or in a doorway, or boarding, phantomlike, a city bus.”
