The Last Song Review
The Last Song by: Nicholas Sparks
In celebration of the movie here is my review of The Last Song. I'm excited for the movie TOMORROW!!!!
Seventeen year old Veronica "Ronnie" Miller's life was turned upside-down when her parents divorced and her father moved from New York City to Wilmington, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains angry and alientated from her parents, especially her father...until her mother decides it would be in everyone's best interest if she spent the summer in Wilmington with him. Ronnie's father, a former concert pianist and teacher, is living a quiet life in the beach town, immersed in creating a work of art that will become the centerpiece of a local church.
The tale that unfolds is an unforgettable story of love on many levels--first love, love between parents and children -- that demonstrates, as only a Nicholas Sparks novel can, the many ways that love can break our hearts...and heal them.

This book is one the greatest books I have ever read in my entire life. Nicholas Sparks did a spectacular job with this book. He captured a story of life beautifully in The Last Song. Readers will finish this book with a new understanding and look on life. This book also hit close to home for me. I've had a similar life compared to Ronnie. Only I wasn't mean to family members or got in trouble with the law. Everyone should read this book. I must warn everyone though that this book is a tear jerker and I cried for like a week after reading this book. I even cried while pouring myself a drink of apple juice. hahha :) Needless to say my mom thinks I shouldn't read anymore of his books. Even if this book is my first Nicholas Sparks book.
