Rated 5 out of 5 by from ROFL I LOVE everything about this book. Very creative idea on the presentation too! You should pick it up when you're on the book store, flip the pages and you will know what I mean! It's interesting how Charlie offers some sense of purpose and connectedness. He's funny, good looking, has an uncanny sense of what time it is, makes good folded napkin cranes and is stone blind, bottom-of-a-midnight-well blind. Bernadette is an exceptional guide-friend. Together, they blindly walk through an adventure of their life!
