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.

Don't hate me for this, dear readers, but in this case I have to say - the Zac Efron movie was better than this book. I know, I know! It's almost sacrilege. But, sadly, true. I can promise it doesn't happen often.Charlie and Sam St. Cloud are the closest of brothers, and when Sam dies in a tragic ca...
Opening Line:"Charlie St. Cloud wasn't the best or brightest boy in Essex County, but he was surely the most promising" I read this a few years ago but after recently seeing the movie I was reminded of how much I’d liked this story and decided I had to revisit Charlie St Cloud and his little brother...
I liked it. It was thoughtful, flowed well, and reflected on the love between two brothers even after a horrific accident. I watched the movie first, and thought that both were well done.
This is a wonderful, cute and sad story. And that's why I loved it. Now it's time to watch the movie.
I thought the movie was quite sweet but I enjoyed the book even more. Charlie St. Cloud is about family ties and the promise that two brother's make to stay together forever, no matter what.... A tragically sweet story that proves that love can conquer all.
