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 Wilmington, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains angry and alienated 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.
In The Last Song, Nicholas Sparks examines the love between parents and children, and first love, too, as Ronnie learns the many ways to heal a broken heart.

Recently Sparks' books seen to have hit a downhill slide - I liked his early stuff fine, but these more recent ones are kind of "formulaic" - kind of like he's tellling the same story over, and over, and over again.... y'know?
I agree with Katherine W. Come on Mr Sparks,you can write better than this ,so please do so,We are so eagarly waiting!!

The first Sparks book I read was "The Notebook". LOVED IT!!! Since then, I have read 3 or 4 more, hoping for the intensity of that first experience. I have never found it - and have decided to stop trying!
In sharp contrast to most reviewers, I have found his later works to be completely predicatable, too sappy and far too "mass-production cheeesy". In my opinion, Sparks has sold himself (and his gift of quality writing) out for a quick buck...just saying!

Once again Nicholas Sparks has brought the characters to life focusing on their struggles with life and love. The book was another one of his that I couldn't put down until I was finished. I enjoyed the book, hoping the movie is just as great.
This book is wonderfully written. Great story. It makes you laugh and cry. One of my favorites.
