Publisher: Simon & Schuster for Young Readers
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters afterall.

I would have been beyond mortified if I were Lara Jean. She was mortified but overall I think she handled it so much better than I ever could have at that age. Granted, she may have made a rash decision but it’s still better than whatever my teen self would have done. Heck at any age having very personal letters mailed out would be so insanely embarrassing! Kudos to Lara Jean for taking charge.
Jenny Han makes you grow to love these characters so much so that it was hard to leave them at the end. And what an ending it was! Ack! I
