The book I'm currently reading is A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. I am only in the beginning of this book and it's amazing. Jamie Sullivan is living a hard life, not having a mom and growing up with her father. "He was forty-three before he ever got married; he was fifty-five when his daughter, Jamie Sullivan, was born. His wife, a wispy little thing twenty years younger than he, went through six miscarriages before Jamie was born, and in the end she died in childbirth, making Hegbert a widower who had to raise a daughter on hi own."(Page 14) This quote shows that Jamie is living a hard life without a mom and has to learn what her mom went through to have her. Jamie was raised by a much older father than most kids her age. Growing up with a dad she didn't get to learn how to fix her hair and how to wear makeup like most of her friends.
In the begging of this book Jamie is very shy and doesn't really talk until one day a boy shows up in her life changing it forever. This boy I do not know the name of yet, but he is changing from a punk to a kind hearted teen who really cares about girl. I really hope you will find the time to read this book because once you do, you'll never want to stop.
