Book Review: Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

Honestly, the only reason I picked this book up was because I felt a weird obligation to see Lara Jean’s story through to the very end. Plus, with the success of the first book’s movie adaptation, there will no doubts be an adaption for all three of these books. While I’m personally satisfied that I finished the entire trilogy, I honesty can’t believe how boring this book was and what a poor ending to the trilogy it was.

Lara Jean is having the best senior year.

And there’s still so much to look forward to: a class trip to New York City, prom with her boyfriend Peter, Beach Week after graduation, and her dad’s wedding to Ms. Rothschild.

Now the girl who dreads change must rethink all her plans—but when your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?

As with the last book, I was underwhelmed with this story and don’t really understand the appeal of it.

Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.
She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.
When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?

I feel like a bad reader. I committed a cardinal sin: I watched the movie before reading the book. To be fair: the movie was all over Twitter and Facebook and I really wanted to avoid spoilers. Here’s the worst part: I liked the movie better than the book. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed this book, but the movie really cherry picked and improved the best parts (and had a phenomenal cast).
