To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister's ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.
- I really found Lara Jean's character to be unique and interesting. I wasn't 100% I really liked her at first, but she definitely grew on me. She was so quirky, which I always love with main characters. No one is really "normal" so there is no point to try to make a normal character - they have to be unique and unusual in some way or another.
- The family dynamics were amazing. I always love a close knit family, even if there is some drama, they all stick together. Lara's Jean's father was amazing. I would love to see more men treat their daughter's like he does. I am hoping that Jenny Han based the character off her own father, because he was a great example.
- Margo and Kitty - well written side characters. I could see myself in Margo a lot more than in Lara Jean. This could be because I was the oldest in the family and took care of some of the duties. I also think I would have been the only one in my family that would have taken the leap and traveled somewhere outside my normal area for college.
- Lara Jean's style was awesome. I so badly wanted to dig through her closet. From what I have seen in picture, Jenny Han seems to have a pretty cute style too.
- For what I thought the story was going to be about from the synopsis, I thought the letters and the outcome would be more the story. I don't know exactly what I was expecting, but it wasn't bad at all - just surprised me I guess.
- Lara Jean kind-of annoyed me. I felt at points that she was immature. I know that I have been out of high school for a while, and maybe losing touch with who I was at sixteen, but it still felt like she wasn't were I thought I was at that age.
- Even Kitty seemed younger than she was to me. They almost treated her more like a 6 year old than a 9 year old.
