      This is a sad yet poignant story about a 14-year-old girl who is murdered in 1973. The story follows the path of the family members left behind and how each of the family deals with their own grief. Fantastic book.

        • I hated that book because it made me cry so much.  It hit too close to home as I have a 14-year-old daughter.  I’m definitely not going to see the movie!

        • I’m really sorry you feel that way. I have twin 12-year-old daughters and a 15-year-old step daughter. It didn’t have that affect on me. But, for me I had to read it for English Comp. 2 in college. I was kind of weirded out by it at first, but as we explored the book, it took on so much more meaning that the death of a 14-year-old girl. Of course that was the focal point, but we looked at many more aspects and that’s why i liked the book so much. However, I can see where you are coming from.

        • I read the book a while ago and thought it was so sad.  I think I must have talked to my daughters endlessly about strangers even though they were 15 and 18 at the time.  I too had a tough time getting through it as I thought of that poor little innocent child.  I don’t want to see the movie.
