better than the movie

the book is much better than the movie--it has a can't-put-it-down quality, even though it's very sad.

Interesting and different

A story told from the point of view of somebody in heaven after her death. She watches as her family and friends face live in her absence. Interesting and different.

loved it

amazing story


This is a book full of human emotions and longing. It makes you think about the imperfectness in the world. It touches on how a family must overcome and cope after a child's death, how the main character can't seem to stop watching life go on from heaven, how she realizes her life ended with so many empty holes...NOT a book for middle schoolers. Some scary and sexual scenes.
