To get over a crush, Lara Jean writes a love letter and puts it in a hat box. These letters are for her eyes only and are her way of moving on. When Lara Jean writes these letters she pours her heart and soul onto the pages, writing things she would never say in real life. One day her life spins out of control when her secret letters are mailed to her past crushes, bringing her imaginary love life into the real world.
Jenny Han has created a great array of characters for the reader to fall in love with. Her ability to craft and nurture so many different characters is truly a gift. I love getting to see all of these characters grow and interact with each other.
I had a few issues with the writing in this book. I felt it was a little young for my liking, I found myself cringing over the way the Song girls called their father ‘daddy’. This is a personal dislike of mine, teenage or adult children calling their parents ‘mummy and daddy’.
The other problem I had with this book was Josh. I just didn’t like his character. He wasnt as solid as the other characters and came across really wishy-washy in his actions and feelings.
I really loved the relationship between the Song sisters. I am one of five girls and I loved how authentic their relationships were.
This book didn’t blow me away but it was sweet enough to spark an interest in me to continue on with this series.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han is a sweet book that will captivate many teen hearts.
