Joanna Rodriguez Interpersonal Communication Movie Analysis #2 Chapter 9 Movie – The Notebook This movie is based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
