I can not praise this novel enough. It evoked so many emotions in me, horror,sadness,grief and joy to name a few. At times when i was reading I only realised I was crying when the words blurred. As i read of Susie and her inbetween heaven my heart overflowed with love and compassion for the character. The idea of a 14 year old child trapped because she can't give up earth and the family she loves so passionately is so gut wrenching. I feel strongly that this book makes you see a bigger picture, that by crying for Susie and caring so deeply for her family you suddenly realise that this happens to families for real. For me that was the true horror of this story. It is an outstanding novel,with such graphic descriptions that you lose yourself in it. I read it in one day, I couldn't put it down and I would recommend anyone to read it..............and I wonder if somebody I love is watching me right now, I hope so, its a comforting thought !!
