The author will be in the UK to promote. Published alongside the author's memoir; "Lucky". "Sebold has given us a fantasy fable of great authority, charm and daring. She's a one-of-a-kind writer" Jonathan Franzen "Painfully funny. Bracingly tough. Achingly sad." Michael Chabon.

Synopsis:

Susie Salmon, murdered at the age of 14, watches from heaven as her friends and siblings grow up and do all the things she never had the chance to do herself. But then she finds that life is not quite finished with her yet.

Cathy Chapman, September 10, 2006 (view all comments by Cathy Chapman)
From the beginning of the book, the reader knows that this isn't any ordinary book:
"My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973."

At first, her family and friends cling to the hope that Susie is still alive. Susie watches from above as her family and friends struggle to come to terms first with her disappearance, and then her death. She yearns to lead family, friends, the detectives, ANYONE to the murderer, but can do nothing to help....
