MMGM--P.S. I Still Love You

P.S. I Still Love You, by Jenny Han




Lara Jean didn't expect to really fall for Peter.

They were just pretending. Until they weren't. And now Lara Jean has to learn what it's like to be in a real relationship, and not just a make-believe one.

But when another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean's feelings for him suddenly return too.

Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?

In this charming and heartfelt sequel to the New York Times bestseller To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Lara Jean is about to find out that falling in love is the easy part.




Okay--disclaimer--I tried not to include spoilers for To All the Boys I've Loved Before here, but I do vaguely mention how the last book ended, and a few other events from the novel. So if you're one of those people who considers *everything* a spoiler (like me) then I do not recommend reading this review.

On to the review!!!

I hope you like Jenny Han, because guess what? This is a trilogy--so you'll be hearing about her time too. :)

So, I am generally not a fan of books were major plot points revolve around a love triangle--however, I do think that there are a few books that can pull them off--this book being one of them. I immediately fell in love with John Ambrose McClaren.

John Ambrose McClaren is my definition of a perfect guy--he's kind, smart, and would do anything to make Lara Jean happy. Even dressing up as a soldier to be her date to a USO party. John also makes regular visits to the retirement home where his grandmother lives, a gesture that many teenage boys neglect to make for their family. He's also not too grown up for a good old-fashioned snowball fight. :)

Even though the last book left me thinking that Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky would be my new OTP forever, this book made me realize that I'm not a very committed shipper. And, quite honestly, Lara Jean seems to think that same thing.

Despite their new-and-improved contract, for their no-longer pretend relationship, Lara Jean and Peter start to question whether they really are meant to be after Peter begins to reconnect with his ex-girlfriend, Gen, over reasons he refuses to explain to Lara Jean.

All of the relationship drama makes Lara Jean long for the days when the group's biggest problem was eating their ice cream before it melted. And when Lara Jean remembers the time capsule her friends buried below their childhood hang-out, she decides to call the group together to open it up--and play one last game of their go-to pass-time as kids--a game called Assassin.

But with her relationship on the rocks, and some embarrassing information floating around the school--winning should be the least of Lara Jean's concerns.

    1. If by "other guy" you mean Josh, he does make a few appearances, but is otherwise left out of the story. (Which is sad, because I love Josh.)

      Thanks!

  3. Haven't read the first book, it is such a great teen read! It reminds me how important it is to date around, run in groups, and experience different relationships. Both boys sound like great guys, but I expect the next book will find her in a similar position. Love realistic fiction.
