Giveaway: The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

I want to give a special Thanks to Valerie from Hachette for offering this giveaway of The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold on my blog.

Check out the new cover of this book that has been created to go along with the release of the movie.  If you are like me and just haven't had a chance to read this book yet, you could be one of the three lucky winners that have an opportunity to win a copy of the book right here!

Here is a summary of the book from the Hachette website:

"My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973."

So begins the story of Susie Salmon, who is adjusting to her new home in heaven, a place that is not at all what she expected, even as she is watching life on earth continue without her -- her friends trading rumors about her disappearance, her killer trying to cover his tracks, her grief-stricken family unraveling. Out of unspeakable tragedy and loss, THE LOVELY BONES succeeds, iraculously, in building a tale filled with hope, humor, suspense, even joy.

The major motion picture version of THE LOVELY BONES, directed by Peter Jackson and starring Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon, Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, and Saoirse Ronan is scheduled for release on December 11, 2009.

I know I should have read this book for a book club meeting and I remember the discussion but can't remember if I actually read it or not. Guess that means I should read it again!
