I read this book because I found it on the BBC Book List Challenge and the perspective of a dead girl in heaving telling her story seemed intriguing. The beginning of the book is not that surprising, but it is still hard to put down. My favourite characters are Grandma Lynn, Buckley, Samuel, Lindsey and the family dog (forgot his name though). The characters Grandma Lynn and Buckley made me smile once and a while, moreover, they seem to make this story a bit lighter.
The author kind a lost me with Susie’s descriptions about Heaven and the out of body experience she en Ruth shared. I thought the end was not quite satisfying, since I felt that I was left with a lot of unanswered questions. I would have liked to see Mr. Harvey get arrested and brought to justice. Moreover, I did not really understand why Abigail decided to return to her family after all, since I did not get the impression that Jack was her true love.
I would rate this as an average read. The unique perspective is most definitely fresh and intriguing. But for me the story did not live up to my high expectations.
