So, what’s it about?
Lara Jean writes these love letters to all the boys she’s ever loved. The idea is that she writes these letters and never sends them, but keeps them for herself, in order to get over these boys. Until all of sudden, those letters get mailed out and her love life goes craaazzyy. Good premise, right? The book is more than this though. It’s also about the relationship Lara Jean has with her sisters, Margot and Kitty.
“Sisters are supposed to fight and make up, because they are sisters and sisters always find their way back to each other.”
The characters ~ It’s so difficult to start with Lara Jean because she’s just ANNOYING. This is supposed to be a 16-year-old girl who has lost her mother, and yet she is one of the most immature characters I’ve ever read in a YA novel. Her narration is utterly grating and I swear I rolled my eyes at least 10 times when she thought something or said the most childish things to Peter or Josh.
