I really liked this book. The story was clever, innovative, and freshly told in the voice of a young recent murder victim now residing in her heaven. It was captivating and heart-wrenching to watch her friends and family on earth try to let her go even as she does the same in heaven. Until the end--when things stepped off the level of the believeable unknown into "give-me-a-break" territory. It's only as a result of that ridiculous twist that I didn't give this book 5 stars, but Sebold really lost me there. Otherwise, this book was excellent.
