Susie Salmon is a normal fourteen year-old girl, until she meets a strange man in a corn field. She has a feeling that something is wrong, but does not leave. That would be impolite. He lures her underground into a “hangout.” Susie follows him, not knowing that she will not leave alive. Unable to escape or even scream, she is raped and killed. From the blood and earth, she rises to heaven. However, she will need to adjust to this new place. Here, she can have anything she wants, except her greatest desire: for her murderer to be dead and herself to be alive. Unable to let go, Susie watches life on earth continue without her. Her little sister grows up past her, her friends trade rumors about her death, and her family suffers. The police look for remains, unaware that they are in a safe in the local sink-hole. As time goes on, her father’s suspicion of their creepy neighbor, Mr. Harvey grows. He would do anything to assuage the death of his little girl, including trying to convince the police that Mr. Harvey is the culprit, when there is no evidence to prove this. Mr. Salmon’s rage and determination tears the already torn family farther apart.
Alice Sebold’s tale will steal your heart. You will feel empathy for Susie, and everybody involved in her death from the beginning. This story doesn’t skip a beat. The beginning will grab you, and pull you through the rest of the story. It will put you on the edge of your seat, make you cry, make you laugh, and make you see the joy through the tragedy. This book is for mature audiences, as there is sex and explicit language. This stunning novel is a must-read.

This book was hard to put down. The story is great and it kept the reader interested in the plot. I hope the movie is as good as the book!!
