Giveaway of The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks



The Last Song
by Nicholas Sparks


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.

I loved The Ultimate Gift. I thought the movie was better than the book, though.

Melissa said...

I loved the Outsiders. I think that may be the only book to movie that didn't loose too much in the adaptation.

I would have to say Forrest Gump. It's probably one movie that is better than the book.

"P.S. I Love You" by Cecelia Ahern was a funny, sad, seet romantic read. Then, they made the movie with Gerard Butler, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Harry Connick, Jr.! Wowser!
