THE LOVELY BONES by Alice SeboldRead about another entry on the list.
I was about 16 when a Waterstones bookshop opened in our town and this was the first book I picked up. I was so engrossed I read it at work in a six-hour shift. It’s told by the ghost of a young girl who was murdered and is about how her family fell apart. It’s a different take on a crime.
