A Walk to Remember
By: Nicholas Sparks
1950s, North Carolina
Landon Carter was a popular guy with a relaxing year planned for his senior year of high school. Jamie Sullivan was the shy, extra-good daughter of the town’s Baptist minister. Both of their lives were destined to be changed, starting from the very first day of school. As Landon grows to know the real Jamie, his mind and heart are put to the test.
Nicholas Sparks writes a beautiful, coming of age novel, full of innocence and character growth. The author uses foreshadowing as a way to communicate with the reader through Landon’s voice and memories. Readers will laugh and cry as their hearts expand throughout this sweet tale. For fans of the movie, this book will be a bit of a shock as it is a nod to the golden days where young men adhered to a dress code and southern traditions were always upheld. However, the best part of this book is that it appeals to all ages and times.
