Three Weeks With My Brother by Nicholas Sparks and Micah Sparks

                                                                   My Review: 4/5

A sad and true story written beautifully by Sparks brothers. 

The Sparks brothers decide to travel around the world for 3 weeks. While they describe different places they are visiting, they remember their life and family, and unveil their story since childhood. Basically the book is autobiography but its done so beautifully that I have to warn you, it will bring tears in your eyes. The book tells the story of how their parents taught the value of education and importance of siblings, their journey from financially difficult childhood to becoming millionaire in manhood. Those of you who complain that Nicholas Sparks always has sad ending, this book is for you. This story tells the reason behind that. 

While story unfolds, he will introduce you so many events from which he was inspired to write the books that made him the bestseller. Even if you are not a fan of Nicholas Sparks, you have to read this book to understand and appreciate your life better. There are actually lots of things to learn from this book. For me, the lines that actually touched my heart were- 
'What you want and what you get are usually two entirely different things.' 
'When you chase a dream, you learn about yourself. You learn your capabilities and limitations, and the value of hard work and persistence.'
