Susie is raped and killed by her neighbor. But no one suspects him because he seems too nice. Susie is telling the story from Heaven, looking over her family. Her parents split up because her father has become so absorbed in finding Susie’s killer that he doesn’t acknowledge anything else. Harvey, the neighbor that killed Susie is never discovered but is killed by an icicle one day when he tries to pick up another girl. This story was different. The details in it really brought it out and made it alive. I have also seen the movie and it was great as well.
