TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE
In this original, relatable, quirky and appealing story, Han has created a gem of contemporary young adult romance. Lara Jean has a wise yet charmingly awkward voice, with an authentic perspective on love and life. Family and culture are a central element to her story, and by the end readers will feel like Lara is their own sister. A fun read with a great balance of insight and humor.
Lara Jean has been infatuated with many boys, but instead of telling them, she’s written love letters to each of them and hidden them in a hat box under her bed. But one day she wakes to find that each of the letters was mailed. Instead of brushing off the embarrassing situation, she gets wrapped up in a scenario that forces her to confront her fears about love itself.
