The book is about a girl named Lara Jean, who writes letters to the boy she loves, and that way she gets over him. She keeps the books in a small box under her bed, and no one knows about it but her. One day the letters get sent out, and the boys are able to read the letters. She was once in love with a guy who is gay now, one of her oldest friends, and the guy who happened to be his sister’s ex. She then pretends to have a relationship with one of them and obviously we can guess the ending.
I also related to Lara Jean in some aspects. She is a girl who cares a lot about family. She is also really naive and a goodie two shoes (i don’t relate to that), but overall she is a girl with a golden heart who is also tough. I believe I am a bit like that.
Jenny Han’s style is one of the things that made me love this book. As in The Summer I Turned Pretty, Han writes in a way that traps the reader, and the way she can go to the past and again to the present without losing the readers’ attention is amazing.
Overall the story is another pretty cliche that makes girls believe in love and happy endings, and we all want that. We read books that will make us forget about what it is going on in our lives and that is okay. This is what my grandmother would call “pink little book” and not just because the design arrangements of the cover.
I will give this book 4.5 stars since I am a Jenny Han fan, and because I really enjoyed the book.
