In an inspirational debut novel by the author of Tuesdays with Morrie, Charles "Chick" Benetto, grieving over the death of his mother, uses alcohol as a crutch to deal with his loneliness, isolation, and depression and the disintegration of his life, until an encounter with his mother's ghost brings him new awareness and leads him to attempt to put his life back together.Charley Benetto, an alcoholic considering suicide, is given the chance to spend one more day with his mother, who had died eight years earlier.

Publishers Description
This is the story of Charley, a child of divorce who is always forced to choose between his mother and his father. He grows into a man and starts a family of his own. But one fateful weekend, he leaves his mother to secretly be with his father--and she dies while he is gone. This haunts him for years. It unravels his own young family. It leads him to depression and drunkenness. One night, he decides to take his life. But somewhere between this world and the next, he encounters his mother again, in their hometown, and gets to spend one last day with her--the day he missed and always wished he'd had. He asks the questions many of us yearn to ask, the questions we never ask while our parents are alive. By the end of this magical day, Charley discovers how little he really knew about his mother, the secret of how her love saved their family, and how deeply he wants the second chance to save his own.

Absolute Wonder !!!  Mar 29, 2010
I thought I have won the jackpot for having picked this book up.

I couldn't believe that a book can be so beautifully written.
Deeply moving and inspirational, this is one of the very few books I would give 6 stars if I could.

Buy and read this book, it will make you smile and cry tears.
An Inmate's Review From Behind the Razor Wire  Mar 24, 2010
An inmate, Douglas Burgess, who writes to me and whose stories we've published in our books, read "For One More Day" and shares the following: "I can't begin to tell you the number of times I've wished for just one more minute with my father, let alone a day. Albom knows how to expose raw nerves, capture intense sorrow, and turn it into something beautiful. This book has had a tremendous emotional tug on my heart." - Tom Lagana, co-author "Chicken Soup for the Prisoner's Soul," "Chicken Soup for the Volunteer's Soul," "Serving Productive Time," and "Serving Time, Serving Others."

Prepare to call your Mom  Mar 21, 2010
The Story: For One More Day follows Chick Benetto after his fall from a promising baseball career in a suicide attempt that leads him to his home town. After failing suicide twice, Chick runs into the ghost of his deceased mother, and spends one full day with her in which he discovers secrets of his past and gains hope for his future.

My thoughts: I never read Albom's popular Tuesdays with Morrie, but I did catch the Hallmark movie remake of his The Five People You Meet in Heaven, so I was intrigued when my father in law loaned me this short novel. It was definitely a short read- easily completed in an afternoon, but well worth it. The book is punctuated with stories from Chick's childhood- times when his mother stood up for him and times when he did not stand up for his mother. These stories were probably my favorite part of the book, because they reminded me of similar stories from my own childhood... like the time I crumpled up a drawing of a tulip my mom colored for me and threw it away. I cried that night because I hurt her feelings. I was 6, and I still feel guilty about that.

All in all I think this was a thoughtful novel. A short, sweet read. On a scale from 1-10, I'll give it 7 cheers! because it made me want to call my mom and tell her I love her. So I did.
Need 3 1/2 star rating!  Mar 7, 2010
I love Mitch Albom! That being said, was this his best work? No. I liked the premise and fully understand wanting "one more day" with my mom or/and dad, but Mitch is so much better a writer than this book. I think he should stick to non-fiction. But I do you you, Mitch!
Great author!  Jan 21, 2010
I got this book for my 14 year old daughter but my 18 year old enjoyed it the most; the author tells wonderful touching stories that we all can relate to. One of thier favorite authors. Definitely worth reading.
