My Review

Ahh Lara Jean. Sweet, innocent Lara Jean I missed you. Despite being absolutely nothing like Lara Jean I think she is amazing. Maybe a little bit crazy with her need for perfection (aka chocolate chip cookie gate) and pleasing others, but so 100% likeable. I was beyond happy that Jenny Han decided to give us one more glance into the life of the middle Song girl.

This book has all the things that I have come to love from this series. Relationship ups and downs, some cute sister bonding and some kick arse braids.

Half way through the book I was pretty sure I had it pegged how it was going to end and I was a bit pissed. But, hallelujah 🙌 I was wrong! Yep. Family, please take note I have admitted I was wrong and being wrong never felt so good (not that I would really know because this is my first time at being wrong…😏). I liked the ended and I feel that Jenny did great justice to the series with how she worked it. Will Lara and Peter have a happily ever after eventually? I don’t know. They are teenagers so its up in the air and that is exactly where it should be for a teenage love story because it absolutely isn’t the time to be making decisions for life.

The only negative for me is that this series had one of my pet peeves. Grown children calling their parents Mummy (or in this case Mommy) and Daddy. Just  something that annoys me personally. Oh and I am sorry but if a character perfects the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever then I expect a damn copy included in the back of the book!

Overall Rating: cupcupcupcup 4/5 teacups
