It might be a bit too new for any study notes to be out yet.

Hey - I have read 'The Lovely Bones' but didn't do it for my PSU. However, I have an idea for your PSU - Why don't you study the first person narrative technique that has been used throughout the book (if I remember rightly) and say how this contributes to the novel overall. Just an idea.

I have read 'The Lovely Bones' but I didn't study it for my HIgher. The way that the main character tells the story from 'the other side' would be a good one, you could say how it made the book seem more realistic in a strange way and more chilling. You could maybe try theme too, smething to do with death or revenge. I know lots of people choose it for PSU so just google it and see if you can find anything.
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.

Hey I'm also doing "The Lovely Bones" for PSU. I need help in finding notes! I'm going to write my essay on Characters (Susie's father and Lindsay) and one theme: Love. Weird that you're called Kirsty too lol. If you find any notes could you maybe tell me where u got them from...I'll tell you if I have any luck on the net. Good luck to you!

And also showing what the author wants us to consider.

The quotes will depend on what your question is......you only want relevant ones to your question.I'm doing lovely bones too this year and basically I'm writing my own notes.I've not really looked online.

Try googling it for notes...

That book seems quite a popular choice for personal study... quite a few other people on this forum are doing the same book.

Ditto. I'm doing the Lovely Bones as well. Could concentrate on the themes? Learning to accept death is part of the life cycle. Should not take anything for granted, and everything happens for a reason?
