Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the New York Times bestselling To 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?
I feel like I’m coming out of a lovely book daze. Binging these books was one of my best recent decisions. The conclusion to Lara Jean’s tale of love letters, sweet boys, and a wonderful family was everything I wanted it to be. It’s not often that a conclusion leaves you feeling completely fulfilled, but Forever and Always, Lara Jean did.
I was a little surprised that so much time had pasted when I started reading this. I had just finished P.S. I Still Love You a couple of days before, so the year difference between the books took me a little while to get used to. I liked the gap in time. It put us right in the middle of an important time for Lara Jean. College decisions. Lara Jean has a plan. She has everything all worked out. Until she doesn’t. She gets thrown a huge curve ball. It was nice to see Lara Jean deal with this big decision. She’s had a tendency throughout the series to listen to other people in her life and not trust herself. It was nice to finally see her overcome that. She really grew a lot in this book.
The romance is still just as sweet as ever. Of course, there’s some problems thrown in but I was really happy with the way things wrapped up for Lara Jean and Peter K.
I loved the family dynamics just as much in Forever and Always, Lara Jean. I loved seeing Ms. Rothschild become part of the family and Margo being home. Kitty! Kitty is my favorite. It would be INCREDIBLE if Jenny Han would write a spin off about Kitty’s high school years. Can this happen? Please?! I think we should start a petition.
