Publisher Comments:

Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control in this heartfelt novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Summer I Turned Pretty series.

What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them… all at once?

Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren't love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she's written. One for every boy she's ever loved — five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control.

Review:

"Lara Jean Covey writes romantic goodbye letters to boys 'when I don't want to be in love anymore,' never intending for them to see the light of day. She understandably panics when the five letters are somehow mailed out, especially because she wrote one to Josh, her older sister Margot's nice, nerdy ex. To convince Josh that she's over him, Lara Jean pretends to date popular Peter, who agrees to the charade to make his former girlfriend jealous. But when Peter holds her hand or jokes around with her younger sister, Kitty, Lara Jean begins to wonder 'what's real and what's not.' As in Han's The Summer I Turned Pretty, there's a love triangle at work, but Lara Jean's personality — goofy, awkward, prone to strong emotions, and entirely naïve when it comes to boys — give this touching story an individuality and charm all its own. Han creates a realistically flawed cast, especially half-Korean Lara Jean and her sisters, who work hard to be good to one another after their mother's death (even when they're at one another's throats). Ages 12 – up. Agent: Emily Van Beek, Folio Literary Management." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

"An ultimately compelling exploration of teenage growth and young love." Kirkus

Review:

"In this lovely, lighthearted romance...readers will remember the Song sisters and the boys in their lives long after the final page turn." School Library Journal, Starred Review

I absolutely LOVED this book. I forgot how much I loved Jenny Han's writing. I was pleasantly surprised when the love story with Peter began early in the book and found myself pulling for the two of them rather than Josh and Lara Jean. Such a fun read. I was so sad when it was over, especially because it left off on such a cliffhanger. I am rereading this book because I have been anxiously awaiting the sequel comes out on May 26th.
