Always and Forever, Lara Jean (To All the Boys I've Loved Before)

Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the New York Times bestselling To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You.

Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.

But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.

When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?

    This finale to the To All the Boys I've Loved Before made me wish for another book! Lara Jean's senior year is filled with confusion over where she'll go to college, how she'll keep up with all the changes in her life and the lives of her family and friends, and whether or not she'll be able to maintain her relationship with her boyfriend Peter when she isn't accepted into the same school he's going to. They find themselves growing apart despite their best efforts. Can they figure out how to stay together long-distance? If it's real love, will they find a way? I cried so much reading this book and the writing is so compelling and immersive, I felt very connected to the characters throughout this series and I related to Lara Jean deeply. I can't wait for the movie adaptation for this last book because the movies for the other books were so good!

      The final book in the "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" omnibus trilogy will leave readers craving more. In Lara Jean's last adventure, the struggles of graduating high school and choosing a college emerges. She always thought she would go to the University of Virginia, which she'd assumed since she was a child. It was close to her house and she had good enough grades, and plus, her boyfriend Peter Kavinsky had already been admitted early because of a lacrosse scholarship. But when Lara Jean's UVA acceptance letter said otherwise, her plans from childhood were obliterated. As Lara Jean struggles to maintain her relationships with her boyfriend, her friends, her sisters, her dad, and her new stepmother while trying to find herself, growing up has never seemed so hard. Despite the strains in her life, however, Lara Jean is determined to find her happily ever after.

        I loved the movie and I realized there was three books so I read them and I'm still on this one. I think you all should read it if you are over 13 but my mom doesn't care so she let me read it. She's says if its a book its good for you to read but its not about me its about the book. The book is about this teenage girl in high school and going to collage. she has a boyfriend Peter that she's on and off with. It has lots of discripted language and its just such a great book I recommend it and I'm half way through with it
