To All The Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han – Book Review

to-all-the-boys-ive-loved-beforeIn ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ by Jenny Han, Lara Jean Song is the middle child of three sisters. She lives with her eldest sister Margot, her youngest sister Kitty and their widowed father. She is a day dreamer that is afraid to take risks or to tell a boy that she likes them. She will like a boy for a while and after she is over them, Lara Jean will write a farewell letter. She keeps the letters hidden in a hat box that her deceased mother gave her when she was younger. Everything in her life seems perfect until her eldest sister, Margot decides to go away for college. Lara Jean must take charge as the eldest sister and make sure that her youngest sister Kitty and her father are well taken care of.

Lara Jean Song and the other two Song sisters are quite interesting. They all have their own personality and they are very strong-willed. They do and say what they want. Margot can be a bit bossy sometimes but because she only wants the best for her sisters. I believe that the book is fascinating and well written. It is relatable to young girls as well as teenagers and women. The book teaches people that independence is important, it teaches people to take risks, it also teaches people to become responsible and about being good to friends, family and potential lovers. I love that Lara Jean learns about love and about letting go of fears of what if. She is a light that is both inspiring and a character that is easy to love. I recommend this book to people of all ages and I hope that everyone can enjoy this book and the rest of the trilogy as much as I have.

P.S. I will start reading the second book, P.S. I Still Love You very soon and will review it once I have finished it.
