The Lovely Bones is a 2002 novel by Alice Sebold about a teenage girl who is raped and murdered, and her fathers quest to find the perp. If anybody tries to rape and murder MY daughter there will be no quest because that guy is going down, down to Chinatown, and Im the one whos going to do it personally and Im talking about DEATH. He is NOT going to a cushy prison cell. Guys who rape and murder need to be murdered, and I will do it myself. I will also rape him. Do NOT come near my daughter. I dare you to come near her and watch what happens. I'll even give you my address. I am a DAM good father. Oh yeah about the book, It was adapted into a 2010 film starring Mark Whaleburg.
