Affected by Susie 's death, her father experiences extreme guilt over being unable to prevent her murder, her sister must take up a more 'motherly ' role to the siblings ' younger brother Buckley, and her mother eventually has an affair and later leaves the family. While Susie herself narrates the most of the novel from her own personal Heaven, many of the novel 's scenes are also…
