10: About the Author: Nicholas Sparks is a romance writer, and has several different books out. He has great point throughout his books.
11: Recommendation: Dear John was the best book I have ever read. It has its good parts like when they went on dates. It also had its sad parts when John's dad dies or the letter John got he never wanted to get from Savannah. Overall I thought it was great book, and will be going to see the movie in a few weeks. You might even be able to relate to the book like I could. When John and Savannah had their problems because of the distance apart they were most of the time. | Review: 5 out of 5 stars
