This one will definitely categorised in the "books that made me cry". I did not really cry, but my throat was often really tight and my eyes watering. This is a tragic story. So beautifully told. It is sad, but it is also full of hope.
Some recents event made me even more emotional about this. But it gave me hope, I like to think they are in their heaven watching over us all, and most importantly, they are together.
This book was heartbreaking. The death of Susie (it's really no spoiler) was not sad, it was tragic but told in a "practical" way. No, what was sad was Susie watching over the people she loves, the people she used to know. Seeing how their lives were going on without her. How her mother needed space, her father was devastated and her siblings had a really hard time.
This story was beautifully written. The plot had no real importance, it was there to show you that life is going on, you cannot stop it. What was important in this book were the words used by the author.
I really recommend it if you are in the mood for a sad/beautiful book.
