The Last Song it a great book, just like the movie. It is all about falling in love, trust, and most of all, family. The biggest conflict in this book, is that Ronnie and her dad don't get along,and turns out in the end that her dad has being dieing of a disease. She never knew that. The life lesson out of this book is always love your family members or anyone because one day they are going to be gone, and you won't get the time back.
