    That sounds like something I should tell my daughter about. Good share!

      Yea I would definitely recommend it to teens, even young teens, 12+

      I feel like death is a big part of life and kids should learn more about it and how they feel about it earlier, maybe before it impacts them directly, if possible.

    I also love Elsewhere and The Lovely Bones. What I find so powerful in these novels is their ability to explore the lives of those left behind. It’s so sad yet so understandable that Liz finds herself drawn to the observation deck to check on her family time after time even though it brings her pain and sets back her own journey.

      I know, it’s so sad, but I feel like I would do the exact same thing. How could you not, if you had the option? I imagine it being very hard to let go, as hard for those on the other side as the ones left behind.
