This was an enjoyable read - nothing deep or exceptional though. I can see this being converted into a movie - which i think would be worth seeing as well. It's a book about second chances, miracles and letting go. Good summer read!

SURPRISE! This is a great story, a little sappy, but great for a weekend read. Judging from the recent movie preview, I didn't expect such a good read, but it really was. It was nice to have Zac Effron to look at lying on my nightstand too. :)

This is apparently a movie now, though I haven't seen it. If they stick close to the book, the movie ought to be a real winner! 4 stars!
From back cover:
In a snug New England fishing village, Charlie St. Cloud tends the lawns and monuments of an ancient cemetery where his younger brother, Sam, is buried. After surviving the car accident that claimed his brother's life, Charlie is graced with an extraordinary gift: He can see, talk to, and even play catch with Sam's spirit. Into this magical world comes Tess Carroll, a captivating woman training for a solo sailing trip around the globe. Fate steers her boat into a treacherous storm that propels her into Charlie's life. Their beautiful and uncommon connection leads to a race against time and a choice between death and life, between the past and the future, between holding on and letting go -- and the discovery that miracles can happen if we simply open our hearts.
