First sentence(s):
I like to watch Peter when he doesn't know I'm looking.

Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the New York Times bestselling To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You.

Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.

But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.

When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?

My two-bits:

Lovely wrap-up to Lara Jean's teen years.

I loved following this sweet character as she navigates through her last year of high school with the pressures of college, dating, family and life's curve balls.

Lara Jean's dreams, reflections and decisions were down to earth with an innocence that was appealing.

The banter and moments between Lara Jean and Peter were amusing and adorable.

A touch of the 80s and 90s references were fun to come across. Made me want to re-watch Sixteen Candles.

The themes of honesty and staying true carries out throughout this series.
