If you have not read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han, this review may contain spoilers for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before but not P.S. I Still Love You.
Lara Jean and Peter are now in a real relationship and not just a fake one. But one of the boys from her letters is coming back into her life as well and she’s not really sure, but she might love both boys at the same time.
I still don’t like Peter. Sorry but I was totally rooting for John Ambrose McClaren. How could I not? He’s adorable and so nice to Lara Jean. Also, he actually really liked Lara Jean in middle school around the same time that she liked him. But sadly, I do not get the ending that I wanted in this book. I do hope we get to see some more appearances from John though, in the third book.
So basically in this book we see Lara Jean and Peter together, a lot. But we also see Peter and Genevieve together, a lot. Apparently, she is going through a hard time and Peter can’t tell Lara Jean what it is. Like Lara Jean is really the type of person to go blabbing to the entire school what Gen’s problems are. Does Peter not know his girlfriend at all? Anyway, I think the relationship between Peter and Gen is way too intimate for exes. But what do I know! Lara Jean just keeps telling herself that they’re just friends but she finally tells Peter how she feels and it doesn’t end well.
Insert John Ambrose McClaren. He was mentioned in book one when Lara Jean when to Model UN to see how he turned out and she quickly ran out of the building. He was also one of the five that she wrote letters to but he never got his because he moved. Well until now. He writes her back and they become pen pals and she immediately tells Peter about it because they have promised to always tell the truth. I’m happy she did that because Peter deserves to know. But you can tell that Peter doesn’t like it. He comes across as jealous and yet he is constantly hanging out with Gen. It’s so hypocritical and it really frustrated me. There’s a whole big thing with Peter and Lara Jean being filmed when they were in the hot tub at the ski resort and Lara Jean just knows that Gen did it. But of course, Peter says there’s no way. Yeah… okay! Peter is also so mad that Lara Jean can’t come to his lacrosse games all the time because she works at the nursing home. Which he has no interest in hearing what she has to say about it. He is just whiny and I don’t like him.
But that’s not to say that I didn’t like the book, because I did. I really enjoyed reading about these characters again. I think Lara Jean is growing as a character and her little sister Kitty is just the best. I love all of the baking that Lara Jean does even if it does make me want to cheat on my diet. I think Jenny Han has a great way with words and I’m looking forward to reading the final book.
