Song de Last. (Is that dorky?)


The Last Song...mmm.
Read it if you haven't. It's delightful. Like legit. A lot of people don't like the movie (mostly becaue Miley Cyrus is in it. Haters), but I do. It's cute. And sad. But, the movie left a lot of things out. So, I say read the book.

Seveteen year old Ronnie and her younger brother Jonah have to leave their home in bustling New york City to live in Quiet Town, NC with their father, Steve, for the summer. Jonah, a little daddy's boy is delighted to see his father whom he hasn't seen much since his parent's divorce. Ronnie, on the other hand, is not. She has never forgiven her father for ruining her parent's marriage.
From the moment Ronnie gets there, she is planning on how to leave. When realizing she can't, she spends as much time away from the house as she can. She takes refuge on the beach, where on day she meets Will. After he catapults into her.
It's not just a love story, I assure you. It is much more than that. It involves innocent sea turtles, Anna Karenina, mechanics, deranged stalkers, evil enemies, crime, love, hate, secrets, fires, sickness, loss, hope, and so much more.

It's an all around good book. There is some parts that drag on in Stev'es point of view, although it is much needed information. I recommend this book to everyone! Seriously. Even guys. Yeah, it's that good. So read it. And, if your not a Hater, as mentioned in it's previous context, then watch the movie. It's awesome too. =]

ps. It is the 226th birthday of John James Audubon... just so ya know.
ps. (times two or would it be pss?) COMMENT PLEASE! Don't be shy.
