What would you do, if all of the sudden the private love letters you wrote but never meant to send are missing. What if one of the guys you had a crush on years ago starts talking, mentioning the letter? Well, that’s exactly what happened to Lara Jean. All her life, whenever she crushed on a boy, she wrote a letter and packed it a way into the box she got from her late mother. So now there a five letters, somewhere in the orbit. Not only is one of them a letter to her big sister’s boyfriend, Josh, (who is by the way her friend and neighbour as well) but there is also one written to Peter, the most popular guy in school. While she struggles to maintain her coolness, Peter proposes a plan. Since he just broke up with his long-term on/off girlfriend he wants to make a statement. And by statement I mean fakedating another girl to show here that this is not just a break. And who would be better for the job than his childhood friend Lara. On the other hand this could be a good way for Lara to show Josh that she isn’t in love with him anymore, even though she is.
I only bought the book because it had a nice cover, but I wasn’t disappointed. I know that Jenny Han has a lot of other great books but to all the boys I’ve loved before was my first. (by now I do own all of her other books as well). Strangely, even though the theme is more for younger readers and it’s a love story through and through even I (age twenty-two) enjoyed it – a lot.
So if you need a book that’s good for your heart and a great love story included. Pick up a Jenny Han book. You will not regret it!
Rating: 9 out of 10
(please note that it is not on the same level as a 9 rating of another genre but for a love story it deserves that rating)
