| PLOT |
Susie Salmon, 14, is murdered by her neighbor. From "heaven" she watches the effects of her murder on family and friends.
Heaven in this novel has no God, but is a place where you get what you want. Susie mourns her death and experiences growing up vicariously through her sister. Eventually she sees her friends and family rebuild their lives.
Some bad language, violence, and sexual situations; graphic opening chapters.
