The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
Ronnie was not happy about spending the summer with her father in Wilmington, North Carolina. She is a city girl...her home is in New York City. Plus, she hasn't spoken to her father in three years, when he and her mom divorced.
Ronnie's first friend is not someone who has her best intentions at hand, and starts hanging out with a rough group. When she is accused of stealing, Ronnie's situation becomes dire. She has a record of theft in NYC, and this arrest could land Ronnie in jail.
While she waits for her court date, she befriends a nice young man who she eventually falls in love with and over time heals the relationship with her father.
It's a summer she'll never forget, full of fun, laughter, sadness and tears.
What I Thought:
Another great Nicholas Spark novel! Make sure to have a box of Kleenex handy for this one!
I enjoyed the transformation Ronnie experienced in this novel. She went from a spoiled bratty girl, to a wonderful young woman.
A great book for a light read, and one that teens could enjoy as well.
