Nadiya Hussain's 6 best books

Nadiya Hussain is a British-Bangladeshi baker, columnist and author, who won the sixth series of BBC's The Great British Bake Off (airing in the US as The Great British Baking Show). One of her six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
THE LOVELY BONES by Alice Sebold

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.
Read about another entry on the list.

The Lovely Bones is among Judith Claire Mitchell's ten best (unconventional) ghosts, Laura McHugh's ten favorite books about serial killers, and Tamzin Outhwaite's six best books.
