To call this Young Adult will limit the audience, I think. This was fantastic, and so very different from anything else I've read this year.
The Returned is a very different book from what I'd usually pick up, but I was intrigued when I read the premise.
This book wonderfully explores what would happen if the dead returned to life, and the situations it presents are so real and so believable.
This book does have an awful lot of religion in, but it is never, not once, pushed in your face. Christianity just happens to be Lucille's faith and she turns to faith when she needs help.
The end of the book is thrilling and shocking and just altogether breathtaking. It ends beautifully.
