The Last Song

The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks A-

"Seventeen-year-old Veronica "Ronnie" Miller's life was turned upside down when her parents divorced her father moved from New York City to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains angry and alienated from her parents, particularly her father ... until her mother decides it would be in everyone's best interest if she and her younger brother spent the summer with him in North Carolina.
Ronnie's father, a former concert pianist, is living a quiet life in the beach town, immersed in creating a work of art that will be the centerpiece of a local church. Resentful and rebellious, Ronnie rejects all of his attempts to reach out to her and threatens to return to New York before the summer's end. But soon Ronnie meets Will. the town's local heartthrob, and the last person she thought she'd ever be attracted to. As Ronnie slowly lets her guard down, she finds herself falling deeply in love, opening herself up to the greatest happiness-and pain-that she has ever known.
-Back of the book.

First thing I'm going to say (even though I'm not reviewing movies) The movie has NOTHING on the book! I actually really hated the movie. Mostly because Miley Cyrus was in it. But anyway, this book was a fun read because I had no idea what would happen. Like you get little hints through out the book and some times the back of the book gives a lot away. But with this one I was totally shocked with the twist of events and charecters. It might not be the case though if you've seen the movie. But even if you have you still have to read the book. Everyone who's seen it says how they kept crying through the movie, and I saw it and the only thing I was thinking is, this movie could be a ton better if they kept to the book....and didn't cast Miley Cyrus. :)
