REVIEW: TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE by Jenny Han

15749186
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister's ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.
I really liked this one. The characters were relatable and the storyline kept me entertained.

“You'd rather make up a fantasy version of somebody in your head than be with a real person.” 

My main issue was that it was a little predictable. The characters were also a little childish, in the case of Lara Jean, or seemed older, like the little sister Kitty. The way they talked didn't match their age.

“You only like guys you don't have a chance with, because you're scared.”

However, Lara Jean was funny, Kitty was witty and Parker was a sweetheart. They made me laugh and enjoy the book.

“Love is scary: it changes; it can go away. That's the part of the risk. I don't want to be scared anymore.” 

I'm afraid I'm going to hate the next installment if things will go the way I think they will. Let's hope the author surprises me with an original plot.

“I didn't fall for you, you tripped me!”
