The Last Song

Hot Topics!Ronnie was arrested by the police twice for stealing. Why do you think she wanted to steal those items?How would you act if your parents got a divorce?

Seventine-year-old Ronnie loved playing the piano she even preformed at Carnegie Hall, But when her parents divorced she left her music in the past and found herself having a couple run-ins with the police. After not speaking with her father for 3 years her mother decided that her and her brother, Johan, should spend the entire summer together at her fathers house in North Carolina. Ronnie, upset, tried to stay as far away as possible from her Dad. So desperate to make friends she ended up with a group of messed up teens who landed her in jail. After that Ronnie was done, little did she know that when she met Will she would fall for his charming personality and little did Will know that when he met Ronnie he would fall for her too. They both spent the summer romancing. A fight later broke them up but when Ronnie learned that her father had terminal cancer they started to see each other a lot more. Unfortunatly her father passed away but her and Wills love continued to live on. Ronnie felt she would have him forever and she was right.I choose this book because its full of life and personality. Every page was filled with even more excitment. I could see everything happening in my head. I could see the pier and the beach house and the dunes where Ronnie and Will had there first real conversation. I enjoyed every page of this book!
