I have a new favorite book. The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks. He has been one of my favorite authors for several years. The Notebook and Message in a Bottle are by him as well.
The Last Song is a love story, but it's not the main focus of the story. The main focus is actually the relationship between father and daughter.
I highly recommend this book!
And while I was watching The Princess and the Frog, I discovered there is already a movie in the works for The Last Song. :)
