A WALK TO REMEMBER
New York : Warner Books, 2001
love story is set in a small North Carolina coastal town in the late 1950’s.
In their senior year in high school, Landon, student body president and
wealthy son of a Congressman, becomes friends with and gradually falls
in love with sweet, unusual and mysterious loner Jamie. As the school year
goes on Landon’s friendship, loyalty, and love are tested, and it becomes
a period of tremendous growth for him. The book opens with “When I was
seventeen, my life changed forever.” A moving story reminding us what great
things true love may sometimes demand of us.
