To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han is an excellent read for any contemporary YA (young adult) reader.  Lara Jean has found a great therapeutic exercise for getting over her crushes.  She simply writes them a letter telling them exactly how she feels and once she is finished writing she moves on.  Of course she never mails the letters to the boys until one day all of her letters are mailed out.  Now all of her secret crushes are reading her letters.  To make things even harder, her feelings for her sister’s ex-boyfriend are resurfacing.  HE received a letter making it even worse now that he knows she has/had feelings for him.  So in order to save some dignity, she decides to have a fake relationship with one her former crushes who has now received an old love letter.  Should be easy, right?

This was fantastic and a sweet love story.  You really want everything to work out for Laura Jean.  She is such  likable character.  Her relationship with Peter is entertaining and endearing.   You want them to end up together, but at the same time you’re not sure if it is meant to be.  Han did a great job showing sisters, with all the ups and downs that go along with family.  Han showed how close the girls were after dealing with a traumatic death. She also made the relationship realistic by showing how easy it is to hurt the ones you love and then finding forgiveness.  If you are searching for a new vacation read or just something to get lost in, this would be a great choice.
