The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
The Five People You Meet in Heaven

Every time I read the lines "Today is Eddie's birthday," I found myself stumbling into another adventure that expresses the dramatic changes a person goes through from one year to the next. Each chapter is so vastly different that it makes a person really reflect on their on experiences and growth. Albom's book shows how even an innocent gesture of a small child can effect the rest of a stranger's life. There are some answers we may spend all of our time wishing we knew, when really that truth will ultimately destroy us. A rainbow of emotions in one short book. It's really a roller coaster at Ruby Pier.
