This is not my typical book in that it’s a YA romance and I tend to prefer more sci-fi-esque YA books. BUT, I’m glad I read it as it was a cute, easy read (and a nice palette cleanser after all the non-fiction books about Cuba I had been reading). Lara-Jean is your average middle school student – a bit studious, very responsible, a good older sister. Whenever she gets over a boy she had a crush on, she writes him a love letter – but doesn’t send it. She pours out her heart and soul and tells them all the things she’d never say in real life. One day, her letters mysteriously get sent and suddenly everything explodes. It’s very cute.
