that's how the story goes. the last song is also a movie starring miley cyrus but i haven't seen it yet. if I'm not mistaken sparks wrote the screenplay before he wrote the novel. and miley cyrus herself choose the name ronnie for her character and she wants to enhance her carrier with a movie similar to a walk to remember. i have enjoyed all nicholas sparks books including this one. however i think this book is basically for the younger generation or miley "hannah montana" cyrus fans. not the best from Nicholas Sparks.
