For One More Day

By Mitch Albom

Review by Janet YunkerFor One More Day.jpg

This book is an easy read – at about a 4th grade level. It is about a man, Chick Benetto, who basically gives up on life and decides to commit suicide. I can’t say much more without ruining the book, but he gets to spend time with his dead mother.  I am having my students read this in class and they became hooked before the end of the 1st chapter.  The book focuses on missed opportunities, those times when you could have – should have – but didn’t.  Since everyone probably has regrets of one sort or another, it really hits home.
