When we first meet 14-year-old Susie Salmon, she is already in heaven. In the sweet, untroubled voice of a precocious teenage girl, Susie relates the awful events of her death and her own adjustment to the strange new place where she finds herself. With love, longing, and a growing understanding, Susie watches her family as they cope with their grief. This story of seemingly unbearable tragedy is transformed into a suspenseful and touching narrative about family, memory, love, heaven, and living.

I found this to be a very good story. It was an emotional story and would have been much better, had it been read by someone who that put emotion into the reading. I felt like I was listening to my old Social teacher. I wish I had chosen to read this story instead of listening to it.
