*Nicholas Sparks is the author of the book. The author target the audiences in the age of teenager. The reason why the author targeting this group of age because when audiences in this age they started to acknowledge relationship. When they notice it, they would try to treasure it. This is what the story about. The author want to let the audiences experience what Ronnie went through in her life.

Who love and care for them the most, they don't appreciate it. Until one day they notice something or someone went missing and would never return to their life again. It's too late for them to feel regret and guilty. That's why the author left a very meaningful lesson behind. The lesson said that just treasure something when they still with you. Even though is easy if you just say it but hard to do it.
