The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

By Jeff Rivera 


Ronnie Miller is the typical angry, rebellious, 17 year old girl and she is still reeling from her parents’ divorce three years ago. Her life is as okay as it could possibly be until her mother sends her and her little brother out of New York to live in North Carolina for a summer with their father.

Ronnie ignores her father and his attempts at bonding for as long as she possibly can. While her brother and father spend time reconstructing a stained glass window for the local church, Ronnie avoids everyone…that is until she meets Will, the most popular and handsome boy in Wrightsville Beach. All of a sudden, she finds herself opening up and falling in love. All of us who have fallen in love and lost someone, can relate to the coming of age tale in The Last Song.
