Book Review: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

By: Carissa Zawiski/Junior Assistant to the Editors

Jenny Han, author of New York Times best-selling book series, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, tells a story about a naive view of love and how it can mature through relationships.

The main character Lara Jean Covey is a teenage girl who lives a basic, high school life until the day her secret love letters to her former crushes get sent out unexpectedly. Lara Jean wrote these five love letters without intentions of ever sending them out. Tension starts to rise at school when boys approach her about the letters, one being her next door neighbor Josh, who is her sister’s ex boyfriend. Lara Jean’s arch nemesis, Gen, whose boyfriend, Peter Kavinsky, is also among one of the five boys who got a letter. Throughout some surprising events, Lara Jean ends up finding herself, and maybe a real relationship.

I would rate the book a 4 out of 5 stars. I really liked the development of the characters throughout the book, especially Lara Jean. She became more confident in herself and comfortable in her own skin. I also enjoyed the connection between Lara Jean and her family. I didn’t really like the ending to the book, which is my reason why I rate it a 4 out of 5, but it makes me want to read the sequel even more. I recommend this book specifically for teens, or adults that are interested in reading dramatic, romance novels. This book is a good, easy read for a lazy weekend. I enjoyed reading it very much and I am looking forward to the next one!
