Meet Sterling Brooks. His was not an exemplary life; his misdeeds were few. His were sins of omission, not commission.
A few days before Christmas, Sterling watches those around him gain passage through the celestial gates. The Heavenly Council poses a test - Sterling will be sent back to earth and given an opportunity to prove his worthiness by helping ...more
Biasanya, buku yang gue suka banget, selalu gue 'habiskan' maksimal dalam dua malam. Tapi buku ini, kayaknya hampir semingguan deh HAHAHAHA..
Bukannya ngga menarik. Buku ini menarik. Kalo gue bacanya pas tahun 90-an kali yah. Pas gue masih sd. Jadi feelnya masih berasa.

This book has all these things, and more. What begins as a simple story of a man wanting nothing more than to be admitted into heaven, becomes a story of hope, fa ...more
The similarities end with the idea of a deceased person trying to gain angel status from good deeds. In the Clarks' book, the problems are much more dramatic than that of the "It's a Wonderful Life" movie, and it is interesting to watch this would-be-angel solve them. I thought of a different soluti ...more
Also, it had a very strong "It's a Wonderful Life" theme, where the main character, Sterling, "gets his wings," or becomes an angel. I didn't really like this, because it's been done before.
Finally, I almost felt that my 12 year-old could have written this ...more
