Always and Forever, Lara Jean


“Sweetly funny.” —Entertainment Weekly

New York Times bestselling author

Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the 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?

Always and Forever, Lara Jean is all about senior year, applications to the future college where dreams will make you or break you, prom including promposal and a perfect place to unwind that is in New York except it was a school field trip. All those count for a great series coming to an end!

First of all, I am glad I read the books when they are all available to me for reading pleasure because I have a habit of getting frustrated having to wait another year just so I can read the next book. For this, I didn't have to! I am very thankful for that. Patience? I don't need that virtue for a moment, ha!

The perfect chocolate chip cookies experiments and tasting testers of Lara Jean! Cookie monsters, I call them. Wedding that everyone anticipated and purely grateful for the extension of the Covey family. College and the distance that may ruin friendships. Goodbyes that usually comes between lovers or in this story, it is just a new chapter beginning towards a bright future for all of them. Uncertain events and forgiveness, learning to let go of the hurt and start a brand new day. Longing for a fatherly affection to come back, hoping things will be fine. All those jumbled feelings, all in one book!

The conclusion to the series has made me want to keep those treasured characters and it is such a refreshing young adult book because it touched the funny side of things when you love someone so much. It does not have to be broken, sadness and drama - it takes a positive heart of that being to laugh with all of the sense the world has to offer!
