How I Found Out About It: I was at the bookstore and it looked really interesting, and the cover really caught my eye!
Review: I liked this book a lot, just like I thought I would when I was browsing through the books at my local Indigo store and became interested in reading this one! The plot is so unique and creative, and Jenny Han did such an amazing job of developing it and making it seem super realistic! Lara Jean, though a little bit self-centred, was a very interesting character, and I definitely felt a connection to her while reading as her voice was so genuine to her age! Her younger sister Kitty was so cute and funny, and Margo studious, and I got a good gist of what it was like to have sisters, as I only have a brother! This book got slow at times, especially in the romance area, but I still often found myself mesmerized! I felt like this was a really good look at romance in modern-day times, and many of the situations were definitely relatable to today’s teens. I really enjoyed the sequel as well, P.S. I Still Love You! Stay tuned for a review!
