Blaze Ronnie Miller Nicholas Sparks Steve Miller Summary Biography:Nicholas was born December 31, 1965 and grew up in a small town in Nebraska. He wrote his first book in 1985 even though it never was published it made him realize how much he enjoyed writing. In 1992 he wrote "The Notebook" which jump started his career and would forever change his life. "The Last Song" is a story about Ronnie Millers summer and how she grows and changes as a person. Ronnie is forced to stay the summer with her Dad, even though she resents him and her mom after there messy divorce, who lives alone at a beach house in Wrightsville Beach. She starts the summer off being a rebellious 17 year old, and soon enough learns that its time for to stop being a little kid and grow up and appreciate everything around her, he parents, and even the boy that comes into her life by surprise . Steve is the almost ideal father. He really shows his kids what it means to love each other. He loves his children unconditionally, and trusts them until given a reason not too. he may have not been the best father for leaving his family after the divorce, but he tries to make up for it as much as he can. Ronnie is an a rebellious teenager who at first is against the whole world but then quickly finds her real self and not to mention a summer relationship. She realizes what is actually important in life and her true self through the course of a summer. She has her ups and downs with Will but in the end they are still together because their relationship is more than a just a fling in the end, they will change each others lives for the rest of their future. Will is the ideal guy any girl can have, he is good looking, fantastic body, athletic, wealthy family, and good friends and a job. Him and Ronnie end up having a summer fling which turns into so much more. He shows Ronnie how not everything has to be so glum. He has some hidden guilt about what the truth about so many events but he cant bring himself to the truth about. Blaze is a local beach girl who befriends Ronnie when she first comes into town. Blaze isn't the best cookie in the jar, she is into some pretty bad habits that Ronnie does not be getting her self into. But as the first person who is nice to her Ronnie chose to start hanging out with her. Blaze lets her jealousy and insecurities get the best of her to eventually ruin the friendship. “I have faith that God will show you the answer. But you have to understand that sometimes it takes a while to be able to recognize what God wants you to do. That's how it often is. God's voice is usually nothing more than a whisper, and you have to listen very carefully to hear it. But other times, in those rarest of moments, the answer is obvious and rings as loud as a church bell.” This passage shows good writing because it not only helps Ronnie out but also kind of is talking to everyone. Anybody could relate to that quote and I'm sure it probably helps some people have hope that god will help someone out a little.
