This is a great book ! This book is about a boy named Charlie. Charlie was born whith only one arm And twisted back . Charlie was a so called "reject" . No one would be his friend. You'll never beleave this book unless you read it for your self. This book you won't want to miss!

I read this book when I was a kid and just recently read it again. (It only took about an hour and a half to read). It has a very positive message--one that youth today can't hear too much!

Format: Hardcover
This was the first book I ever read by either Blaine or Brenton Yorgason. I've since avidly read a dozen of their books (with more than 40 total), and found them to be very engrossing, frequently entertaining, and have always been left with a deepened appreciation of "Life's Teaching Moments".

Originally written to help his students gain greater self-esteem and appreciation for the differences in each of us, Yorgason later discovered that the story mirrored the life of one of his ancestors.

Charlie is a "freak"-- born with a twisted back, one arm, and a shambling gait, he overcomes the scorn and rejection of others to win the love of the prettiest girl in town. When she dies at the hands of a drunken doctor, Charlie becomes embittered, but the essence of his character is revealed when faced with a choice of saving or abandoning the man responsible for his wife's death.

Like so many of Yorgason's stories, a great tale of the "uses of adversity", the power of love, courage, and the triumph of the human spirit... a great read, highly recommended.

This is an easy read, but I guarantee it will make you cry! Once you've read it, you'll likely want to share it with someone you care about. Ever since I read it for the first time over 15 years ago, it has been my favorite book!

Charlie's Monument was a really good books that teaches life skills on learning to love others who have disabilities. And also to remember the good things and to keep on going no matter what happens to you.

Was advertised as new, so I bought it at the "new" price and when I got it was disappointed because there was writing on the inside cover and you could tell the book was not new.

This is a great book that arrived quickly and in better condition than advertised. I don't remember why I rated this so high but I didn't have any problems and I would have remembered if I did.
