Book Giveaway: The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

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 Wrightsville Beach, 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.

Today I was at the store killing some time and thumbed through a copy of The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks.  I couldn't decide whether to buy it or to check it out of the library.  Lucky for my readers, you can enter to WIN A COPY instead!

Thanks for the link to my review. Congrats on holding the contest - it's a great book to give away. I'm not sure I'll like the upcoming movie as much as I liked the book - Miley Cyrus is not at all how I pictured Ronnie - but we'll see :)

Mo - I'm so glad you're okay with it! It's a great review! I'm trying not to pay any attention to the movie news. Let us know if you see the movie!

Hi Allison! Thank you for leaving a comment on our blog. Your blog is not showing up in my google reader for some reason. I follow most of my blogs in my blogger and only have a few that I follow in the google reader, so I may be doing something wrong? I'm really not sure? I added you to my yahoo reader to see if that would work and I am also linking your blog to my sidebar under Favorite Book blogs/sites. I don't know if that will count for the contest or not though?
