THE DEATH AND LIFE OF CHARLIE ST. CLOUD
The conflict arises when Charlie meets a girl, Tess with whom he has somehow developed feelings for. He was torn between a genuine love for a girl and his undying affection for his brother. It gets more intense as Tess set to sail one day and was reported missing.
Charlie St. Cloud is really a tearjerker of a story and will definitely pinch the most solid of hearts. It makes us realize that life is short and indeed needs to be cherished. We don't know when life is gonna take its final dance upon us and our loved ones. But aside from that, this book teaches us the value of letting go and setting free. Life is never a regular thing and death is but constant. Letting go of our departed family members does not mean we will forget them because for sure they will forever remain in our hearts.
