Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
Good growth of the main character.
Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
Definitely a good read after many years of seeing the movie:) As well as a student reading it this year and reminding me I should read it as well.
Shadow of a Bull by Maia Wojciechowska
Seeing the growth of the boy, Manolo, was quite interesting as he faces the pressures of the town people.
