Amazingly Written, Utterly Stunning Read
I am 13 years old and I would say this was very much an adults book. Although i found it utterly compelling to read about such a disaster being turned on its head and seen from a different view point : heaven and the girl being so close to my own age, i found myslef putting myself in susies position throughout the book. I read this book over a week and found it very sad and moving in some places and strangely uplifting in others. The film is also extremely good but a lot is missed out and i think that is you have only seen the film, reading the book is also a very good idea, i felt that if i had not read the book, some of the film would not have made any sense. I would recommend this book to my age and older for it exposes a lot of our greater fears and gives readers a whole new perspective of what heaven is like; and a much more realistic feel to it. A traumatic but compelling book; another take on a regular tragedy in todays modern life of the break up and reuniting of a family after a devastating event.
