Reviewed by Gabi L.
What if all your crushes you’ve ever had found out how you felt about them… all at once? Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean has never openly admitted any of her crushes to anybody. Instead, she writes a love letter to each boy, seals it, and keeps them all hidden in a box under her bed. One day, Lara Jean finds out that all five of her secret letters have mysteriously been mailed out to every one of her crushes. With her love letters out in the open, she is confronted by all of her past crushes about the letters, including her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, and her sister’s ex-boyfriend. Lara Jean learns to face her emotions and this awkward, complicated situation head on as her love life suddenly goes from imaginary to out of control.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is a book for the hopeful romantics out there. Lara Jean’s crazy life is filled with energy, laughs, and even a few tears. Author Jenny Han creates likable, relatable characters as Lara Jean tries to find a reasonable way to handle all of her past crushes at once. This is a fun, enjoyable the read for those who love romance, comedy, and drama.
