Lara Jean Song wrote five secret love letters. One to every boy she’s ever loved.
She never intended for anyone to read these letters, but when they’re delivered, Lara Jean has to open up about her feelings. As she faces current crushes and past loves, Lara Jean is forced to choose which boy will be her future.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is a wonderful trilogy starring an unexpected protagonist. Lara Jean Song is a timid Korean teen. She’s not the smartest, the prettiest, or the funniest, but her little quirks (a love of baking and wearing thrifted clothes) make her a relatable and believable character.
When her love letters are mailed by her little sister (in a moment of spite), Lara Jean’s simple and quiet world gets turned upside down. Her past crushes range from the high school stud, her older sister’s ex, and a top member of the Model United Nations team. The variety of personalities and interests gives good depth and entertainment to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
The third book is the weakest of the series, but by the last book, I was so invested in Lara Jean’s story that I pushed through the slow parts.
If you are looking for a lighthearted read that’s filled with high school heartache and first loves, then I highly recommend To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
