The Last Song
Transcript of The Last Song
and then her father said something along the lines of:
"Jonah we don't use that word in this house"
and then Jonah said:
"Fine, Jiminey crap!" Somethings I Never Thought of I had never thought of how people with seperated parents deal with the seperation and living between parents because I've lived with both my parents for my whole life. This book also made me think of how rebelious children live their lives and sometimes they rebel because they feel misunderstood. also, they might not be ver close to their parents and theyr parents might notunderstand them. Something That Happened To Me There wern't many things in thisbook that i could relate to but one part of this story that remindedme of something i did was: When Ronnie slept outside to protect the sea turtles it kind of reminded me of the time when a pigeon had layed an egg on our balcony and abandoned it; so, we decided to bring the egg in and take care of it but, unlikeRonnie we failed to save the bird...and it died. WOW! :O Somethings in my book that made me say wow was the fact that in New York Ronnie would stay out all night alone at clubs and her mother wouldn't know were she was. Also, how much she and her mum faught was surprising. Another thing that surprised me and made me say "wow" was that Ronnie had been charged for shoplifting twice (even though the secound time it was an accident). Cry :'( i cried when Ronnie and Jonah found out there dad was dying and also when Jonah was confused and thought that his dad would get better if he finished the stain glass window. i also cried when, at the end of there fathers funeral, the light was shining through the finally finsihed stain glass window and it reminded Ronnie and Jonah of ther dad. Another time I cried was when Ronnie finally played the piano for her dad and it was there "Last Song" Plot The Last Song is the story of Ronnie Miller and the summer that she spends with her father at Wrightsville Beach. At the start of the summer, she is a rebellious 17 year old who resents her parents for their divorce; she is mostly annoyed that she is being forced to spend the summer with her strange father, who she hasn't spoken to in three years. She is so angry that she has abandoned the one thing that she and her father used to share in common — playing the piano. She is totally against spending the summer in North Carolina; she doesn't to get to know Will Blakelee, the good-looking beach volleyball player who literally bumps into her during her first day in the South; and she has no desire to reconnect with the father who left her, her mother, and her brother. However, a run-in with the wrong crowd along with a nest of endangered loggerhead turtle eggs results in Ronnie's unexpected maturation. The summer she dreaded in the beginning ends up being an opportunity for her to learn about faith, family, and love. Awards

Another small problem in the story was that Ronnie was convicted of stealing twice and then a third time she was framed but, she was not sent to jail because the real theif fessed up.
