To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han

Have you heard of this books? Well, it's clearly making the circuit as Netflix will soon be turning it into a movie. Fun!

To All The Boys I've Loved Before is a story about a sixteen year old girl named Lara Jean who keeps her love letters in an old hatbox her mother gave her. The letters get mysteriously sent out after a fight with her sister. One of the boys is her sister's ex-boyfriend and next door neighbor, Josh. In order to convince him she's over him, she starts 'dating' Peter Kavinsky. Peter is one of the hottest guys at her school. He recently broke up with Genevieve, Lara's childhood best friend and they make an agreement to 'date' each other for a few weeks. When Peter and Lara start to fall for each other will they end up being a real couple? What will happen when Josh confesses his own attraction towards Lara? What will her sister say when she comes home from college for Christmas?

I'll admit that the main reason I read this book was to get ready for the movie coming out this fall. I had mixed expectations about it at first, but it was a great story. Jenny Han did well with introducing the characters. I hoped there would be more 'sparks' between Lara and Peter as the story progressed, but it was still good. I give the story four and a half stars.
