The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks – Giveaway!

Thank you to Hachette Book Group for giving me three copies of this book for giveaway!

Giveaway is now closed.  Thank you.


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. The tale that unfolds is an unforgettable story about love in its myriad forms – first love, the love between parents and children – that demonstrates, as only a Nicholas Sparks novel can, the many ways that deeply felt relationships can break our hearts… and heal them.

Did You Know:

The Last Song debuted as #1 on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists?

Miley Cyrus chose the name Ronnie for the main character?

Nicholas wrote the screenplay before he wrote the novel?

The Last Song is the longest novel that Nicholas has written?

The Last Song is both a love story and a coming of age novel?

  1. If I could spend my summer anywhere…

    On this continent: Mackinac Island– that would be nice. At the hotel where they filmed Somewhere in Time

    Overseas: England, for sure.

    If You Could Spend Your Summer Anywhere, Where Would It Be?

    I Think If I Could Spend A Summer Anywhere It Would Be In Hawaii. I Have Always Wanted To Go There. It Looks Like A Nice Relaxing Place To Get Away From All Your Worries For A While.

  16. I love this book so much! That makes a lot more sense that it was a screenplay first because they did such a good job casting Ronnie, but now I know that they kind of based Ronnie on Miley. I loved the book and I am so excited for the movie. It made me laugh, cry, and and every emotion there is. It is sooo good! Anyway, I tweeted this contest.
