Feature and Follow Friday: Caught in the Middle

Q: Tell us about the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book -- and how did you react?

The book is called The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. And there is a scene where Susie Salmon (a ghost) holds her father's hand in the hospital and her brother holds the other while the father lingers between life and dead. Both children want to claim the father on their side. Please Live -- Please Die --

I was crying the whole time!!! Which is strange for me since I usually laugh whenever I encounter something emotionally uncomfortable.


  1. Yes, I remember this one. I think I first read it when I was in middle school,and I thought it was well written. The film was all right; wish Idk, that it had more of the book incorporated :/

  3. Oh my god, I totally forgot about this book! I don't remember that particular scene but I do know that I said I would never read the book again because it made me cray.
