…moreHello, i don't think it would be unappropriate for your daughter. There is no description of "making love" in the book. Modesty could be a key word.
Both characters have difficulties about love by trusting and expressing themselves about their feelings.
It is a very beautiful book as Nicholas Sparks often do which offer a very nice vision of love.
I would not say it is unappropriate for a teenager but if you're not sure, the best thing to do may be to read it yourself before she does.
Hope she will enjoy it !(less)
I used to see Mr. Nicholas Sparks as a guy who kills off his characters for sport. Like every time he writes a new story, I picture him rubbing the palm of his hands against each other while madly grinning and asking “Who I am going to kill this time? *insert evil laugh here*” Only after reading this particular novel of his did I learn how wrong I was. I learned that most of his stories’ premises are based from his real life experiences or about members of his family and I believe it takes true ...more

She knew that the initial feelings associated with love were almost like an ocean wave in their intensity, acting as the magnetic force that drew two people together. It was possible to be washed away in the emotion, but the wave wouldn't last forever. It couldn't -- nor was it meant to be -- but if two people were right for each other, a truer kind of love could last forever in it's wake. At least, that's what she believed.

I first read THE RESCUE in 2002 and enjoyed it just as much this time with it's rediscovery. As soon as I opened the first page I was lost, reading continuously for the next 24 hours. Thinking to myself, damn that Nicholas Sparks' he's done it again, sucking me right back into one of the best love stories I've ever read.

This turned out to be a good choice because this was such a feel-good book. It's about a volunteer firefighter and a single mum but really, it's about how love can rescue you from yourself. The relationships explored in thi ...more
The heroine is a penniless single mom who works the night shift as a waitress and during the day takes care of her disabled 3-year-old. The first time the hero comes to her house--on an unplanned visit--he notes that even though the place is old, it's spotless. From this, of course, we're supposed to infer that the heroine is a hard worker, has high moral fiber, and is good wife material.

I borrowed this book from a friend while on vacation, because I was DESPERATE. She promised it was amazing. It was not.
I did not like Taylor. Denise was a flagrant Mary Sue (did the woman have a single flaw?). Melissa and Mitch's main functions were to push Taylor towards (or back to) Denise. The writing was flat - it seemed rushed, and watered down.

El desarrollo de la novela me gustó mucho, no fue apresurado en absoluto, aunque debo reconcomer que era bastante predecible (por eso y porque el epilogo me parecía merecía un poco más de desarrollo le quito una estrella)
