Reviewed on Richard and Judy on 8th June 2005 and voted the third most enjoyable read by viewers.
A car crash kills Charlie’s little brother and, after a near-death experience, leaves Charlie with an ability to see the dead, to remain in touch with his brother and to share time with him.  But this is no ghost story, you just accept Charlie’s gift, it’s a natural part of his gentle life, it’s beautiful and touching.  Then Charlie falls in love and the novel becomes heart-achingly moving and totally enthralling as extraordinary choices have to be made.  Simply written, thoughtful, intelligent and emotional, it may be a little saccharine for some, but I loved it, gently weeping at the end. It has just been chosen as a Richard and Judy summer read and personally, of the six featured books, this is my pick for the winner.

Comparison: Alice Sebold, Mark Haddon, John Irving.
