To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han

I picked up To All The Boys I've Loved Before because I'd seen good reviews and honestly it sounded fun. Wow, I was blown away about how much I liked this book. I had a hard time putting it down and I tried to skip dinner in favor of finishing it. Dinner had to be made but I made something quick so I could finish it.

Lara Jean's going to be a junior in high school this year. Her older sister is headed to college. Lara Jean will be the responsible sister and watch out for her dad and little sister. But Lara Jean's got a problem. The five letters she wrote to the boys she's loved in her life have been sent to those boys. Do they still remember her? Do they like her too? Does she still love any of them?

At first I didn't really get much from Lara Jean. I liked her older sister, Margot, but she was headed off to college. Slowly Lara Jean grew on me. Lara Jean just needed some time to come into her own. And then all the boys get their letters and Lara Jean has to deal with the aftermath especially since she thinks she might be falling for one of them again. This was such a sweet story. I enjoyed how Lara Jean grew and learned how she fit into things. Without her older sister, she needed to learn what she wanted. I also liked Josh and Peter, two of the boys who get the letters. I could really feel them jump off the page. Lara Jean's little sister, Kitty, jumped off the page. She was a hoot. I really liked the family dynamics of Lara Jean's family. Plus Josh, the boy next door who kind of reminded me of Jase from My Life Next Door. I was sad when I finished it but super excited that book two will be out soon. I really enjoyed this one (ya think?). I'll be looking for more of Han's books. Others who shared their thoughts on To All The Boys I've Loved Before: The Book Monsters, The Novel Hermit, and What A Nerd Girl Says.
