The Last Song

This book was suggested by a student/friend of the family... she LOVED it. When I started reading it I was really frustrated and it put me in a bad mood. The main character, a 17 year old girl, has a MAJOR attitude problem and it was painful to read... to be honest it made me down right cranky. Finally I asked the suggester if she ever got a better attitude, and shortly after that there was an attitude change and the rest of the book was very enjoyable.

Following a young woman during her coming of age summer, through the rehabilitation of the relationship with her father, and the feelings of first love. Rich with lessons of life: forgiveness, integrity, honesty, and embracing second chances makes this book an excellent read.

Learned: Life is too short and full of many unexpected turns, so don't ever take for granted what you have... make the most of each day with the ones you love.
