Two books you have to read this summer:
“Lucky” and “The Lovely Bones” by Alice Sebold.
I couldn’t put them down until I had finished them. I love books that do that to you, make you forget the world around you and suddenly wake up 10 hours later not really knowing what hit you.
“Lucky” is Alice’s memoir that tells the story of how she was raped as an 18-year-old college student. It’s horrifying, scary, and above all: true. And it is written in a language that keeps you reading even though you know you really do not want to learn more about those horrors.
“The Lovely Bones” is her first novel. It has been highly praised and is actually worth it to. A must read!
