The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

The Last Song is perfect escapism reading, but like all Nicholas Sparks novels, it is best to have a Kleenex box at hand when you read it!

Ronnie Miller is a bitter teenage girl. She was very close to her father and shared a passion for classic piano playing with him until her parents divorced and her father moved to North Carolina. Now years later, Ronnie is being forced to stay with her father for the summer with her kid brother Jonah. While she is not happy with the situation, she learns a lot about herself, her father, and her parents’ marriage throughout the summer.

Ronnie also meets a handsome teen named Will and they share a summer romance. While Ronnie is rebellious and finds herself in her fair share of trouble, Will is the son of a rich family and attracts his fair share of female attention. Will their love be able to survive with such different backgrounds and futures?

I enjoyed this book. It was perfect light reading when you are not feeling so good . . . except for the Kleenex box moment at the end! I haven’t seen the movie yet, and I am still having a hard time picturing Miley Cyrus as Ronnie.

Book Source: I won this book last fall from Mel at He Followed Me Home .

  1. Great review!! I started reading this one but felt all disoriented by the prologue. Is the prologue skippable??
