I loved this book so much! When I first started reading the book, I was a little unsure about how it's gonna go, but it totally didn't let me down! My two favorite characters were Kitty & Chris and I shipped Peter and Lara so much!! The humor in this book made me laugh out loud many times and everything was beautifully well-written. I can assure you I'll be reading more Jenny Han books in the future.

Lara Jean is the middle of three sisters being raised by their father. Their mother died when the youngest sister was very young. So Margot (oldest sister) and Lara Jean are "mom" to their youngest sister Katherine (Kit). Margot is dating a neighbor (Josh). All the sisters are close with Josh. Margot is leaving for college in Ireland and decides to break up with Josh. Lara Jean writes love letters to boys she has fallen for. These boys don't necessarily know she loves them and the letters are never meant to be seen by them. Somehow Lara Jean's letters get mailed and life gets complicated and crazy for her. Josh was one of her five crushes. All of a sudden Lara Jean has to deal with Josh knowing about her feelings for him when he just broke up with Margot. There is another boy at school that gets his letter. Chaos and emotional confusion ensue. Interesting look at a realistic situation. Good read. Looking forward to reading the sequel.

**I received a free copy of this book from Simon & Schuster. That in no way influenced my review.**I completely adore the young adult series by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivan ("Burn for Burn") so I was excited to have the opportunity to read a book by Han alone. "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" features a teenage girl struggling to take over the role her older sister held when her mother died after she moved to Scotland to attend college. Lara Jean writes five letters to the five boys she's loved but never dated and somehow these letters are mailed.The "mystery" of the book, who mailed Lara Jean's letters, was not the focus - rather, Lara Jean embarks on a fake relationship with one of the boys in order to deceive another boy (her sister's ex-boyfriend). There are no major surprises but I liked the ease in which Han involves us in Lara Jean's world and it was a nice break from the angst that seems to be overwhelmingly represented in YA books at this time.
This was a nice, fun story to listen to while working. I didn't have to put too much thought into anything, but it still kept my attention pretty well. I enjoyed the character's and how each personality was explored. I'm excited to read/listen to the rest of them!
Lara Jean has written ...
Lara Jean has written love letters to her crushes through the years and kept them hidden in a hatbox given to her by her mother. Those letters get mailed and she has to deal with the consequences. I enjoyed the first person point of view. I felt as if I was in her shoes. Lara Jean had to grow up fast. She had to deal with the embarrassment of her deepest feelings being known. She also had to learn to deal with conflict within her family that had become minimal with the death of her mother. There are secrets within the family that come to light with the letters. Relationships change. The beginning was slow. I was afraid that it was going to be trite with every daily happening being told but it got better once Margot was off to college and the letters' fallout begins. It became what I expected and definitely got better. I enjoyed watching the changing reactions to one another and the truths being revealed. I look forward to the sequel to see how it all plays out.
