Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the New York Times bestsellingTo All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You.

Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.

But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.

When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?

Lara Jean and Peter’s story continues and it focused on their road to college mixed in with future plans, family problems and inner struggles. I actually liked how genuine this book was. It wasn’t filled with pretentious drama and cliche nonsense. It was like going through someone’s day and just knowing that this could be easily happening to someone right now. A lot of teenagers can relate to the character’s dillema and I loved the way that it was resolved. I was a little frustrated with the slow pace at first but when it latched on to me, it became fast and I just went on with it. 

I was glad of all the points that were shown in this book and how great an example it is to countless teenagers reading it right now and are facing the same situation. Maybe Lara Jean seems a bit dramatic at times but I liked how she handles things and the way she faces them. Sometimes I find her naive and a bit melodramatic but I’m glad she comes out of her comfort zone too. And one thing too, Thank God she didn’t do anything stupid that she may have regret in the future. This was such a good book for coming pf age teenagers. Kudos to Jenny!

Giving this book 4 stars because even though I am not a fan of cheesy contemporaries, I loved how realistic this book was. Cheers!
