Pfft nepotism at its best. But WHY THE HELL are all Nicholas Sparks novels so similar!? Old man telling how he fell in love with the woman of his life…. The notebook was enough. I hated how Rachel McAdams basically played the exact same role a second time around in that movie with Channing Tatum. Ugh.

Sounds kind of depressing. Sparks’ novels always have an air of such sadness to them.

His dad needs to play the old man!!!!
