Enrich discussion of a contemporary classic with these study guides to Peter Jackson’s film, The Lovely Bones, based on the novel by Alice Sebold. The high school program examines how this story compares to other coming-of-age stories, explores the family dynamics that drive the action, and investigates the underlying theme of loss. The library program, for book groups and adult readers, poses questions that probe more deeply into the theme of loss, and includes suggestions for further reading.
