Goodreads Synopsis:
             An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life--until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah. Their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who has captured his heart.

But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else.

Dear John, the letter read... and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Returning home, John must come to grips with the fact that Savannah, now married, is still his true love—and face the hardest decision of his life.
My Review:
            Dear John is one of those books where you can't help but fall in love. The characters were well developed. I felt like I could connect with each and everyone of them on some level. Whether it be the heartbroken young women or the confused rebel that John was. Each character had a unique way of being presented into the story. Especially the love between John and Savannah. Their love didn't start suddenly with all consuming passion. No. They slowly fell in love, which is the way I see people falling in love. I liked how Sparks took his time creating a back story to base the love on. The plot was heartbreakingly beautiful. It was sad to see John go away but what made me really evaluate life was the fact that life is short. And  in the story you can see how little time Savannah and John have but they make the most of it. Even though they have a ruff time in the middle of their relationship they just live life. This was definitely a heartwarming love story that makes you wish you find the right person for you. And Savannah and John were perfect for each other. I truly enjoyed reading this book. And the movie wasn't bad either! If you haven't seen or read the book/movie check it out!
