They both never forgot the summer they spent together. Noah worked on the house he had his eye on and Allie had met a guy.

She knew her parents would definitely not approve her life with Noah. There comes a time where people have to decide between the happier life and the better life.
This novel is a romantic story about two hearts reuniting and the decision she makes will change her life forever.
I recommend this book to girls that like romantic stories, because this story can relate to them. It is very realistic and detailed. As I read it, I could imagine every part like a movie. I like how it teaches us that no matter what the right way is, we should still decide what makes us happier. It is an amazing story and I think everyone should read it, even if you have seen the movie.
