For One More Day by Mitch Albom

Charley Bento, or Chick as some call him, grew up with a supportive mother and a very strict and overbearing father. The effects of his father’s controlling nature were detrimental, and when he grew up, things progressively got worse. His mother and father both died before he was 30, and his wife and daughter eventually left him due to his alcoholism. Things just didn’t seem to be going right for him and he felt that the only way to end the pain was to kill himself. Charley attempts to commit suicide but he lives. After this life changing moment, the unspeakable happens….

This book, For One More Day, is a great book if you like realistic stories with life lessons. There are a couple of sad parts, but they only make the book better. I recommend this book to everyone.
