Review: To All The Boys I've Loved Before By: Jenny Han

To All the Boys I've Loved BeforeTo All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Lara Jean Covey has been in love, at least from afar. And when she finds the need to purge that out, she writes each boy out of her system a long love letter, from the heart, tears, empty dreams flow and now as each envelope sealed and addressed hide in her hat box - a memory. That is until her sister Margot decides to go away to school in Scotland and her dad decides to clean house, and soon mysteriously those letters are now in the hands of the ones that were never meant to see them - including her sister's ex boyfriend and boy next door, Josh. To complicate matters, Peter, her former friend's recent ex, got his and now has an idea that might help both of them - a fake relationship. Lines blur for everyone and the complications of what once was felt and what is now happening ripple, maybe Lara needs to stop the fantasy and hold on the possibility of reality.
This is a cutesy type of book, some of the "drama" seemed forced and didn't necessarily flow with the book, and the ending wasn't as climatic as I wished it would have been - but overall, I liked it, predictable, sweet, and something to enjoy for a couple hours when at the pool.
