This is another knockout novel that I almost miss if it’s not for AJ who gave me the book as a present on my 19th birthday. I haven’t heard of it before actually. I thought it’s in the vein of a Nicholas Sparks’ schema where a character will eventually die and I will feel really bad after I read the book. It’s certainly not your everyday “Sparks’ plug”. I love Nicholas Sparks tho. He makes me weep every time I read his I-will-make-you-cry-and-feel-like-you-are-in-it works sort of thing.
So here’s the ‘Savagely beautiful” novel you shouldn’t miss. I know it’s now a major motion picture however, you might want to get a hold of it if you haven’t, yet.
“My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973.”
