Image of P.S. I Like You

Once again, West pens an adorably cute romance that will leave you with a smile on your face and a huge case of the warm fuzzies. Instead of conforming to the norms of the digital age with text messages and emails, West incorporates writing letters as a way for the characters to communicate, adding a unique component to this sweet romance. Things get off to a bit of a slow start, and events can be predicted here and there, but it is the perfect read if you’re in the mood for a sweet, swoony love story.

Lily and Cade can’t be in the same room together without fighting. She thinks he’s arrogant, rude and cruel and tries to avoid him at all costs. Thankfully, she gets a reprieve from him in chemistry class. Lily starts writing song lyrics on her desk. She doesn’t expect anyone to write her back, but someone does. Her mysterious pen pal starts leaving notes for her to find and a friendship forms. She has a few guesses as to whom her secret pen pal could be. Is it her longtime crush Lucas? Or perhaps it’s Danny, the guy her friend Isabel keeps trying to push on her. She only hopes it’s not the jerky Cade. Yet she starts seeing him in a different light after he becomes her little brother’s baseball coach. Maybe Cade isn’t so bad after all?
