About this title:
A Book-of-the-Month Club Main Selection
When we meet Susie Salmon, she's already in heaven. She tells us, in the voice of a fourteen-year-old, a tale that is both haunting and full of hope. Susie watches life after her disappearance: her loved ones hoping she'll be found, her killer covering his tracks. She sees her family face the worst -- then, in time, pass through grief and begin to mend.
Included in Basic 5 and 6.
Product Description: Susie Salmon speaks to us from heaven, because she was murdered when she was 14 years old by a man who lived in the same neighbourhood. Over the years, her friends and siblings grow up, fall in love and do the things she has never had the chance to do. But life is not quite finished with Susie yet.
