The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

The Last SongThe Last Song

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 Wrightsville Beach, 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.

As with nearly all books that come out by Nicholas Sparks, as soon as I heard that this book was on sale, I marched down to the book shop to buy it immediately!  This book was (and I probably say this about nearly every book written by Nicholas Sparks) beautiful.....  The relationships between the main characters and even the side characters were so compelling... 

I watched the movie at the cinema and thought it was good, although I still prefer the book as it gives more detail of the story...

I agree the book was way better than the movie. Also I don't like Miley Cryus to much. I think she should sticl to singing rather than acting.
