To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han (Book Summary)

Lara Jean Song Covey has two sisters. Her older sister is Margot, and the younger one is Katherine/Kitty. She has loved 5 boys her entire life. Josh, Margot’s boyfriend. Peter Kavinsky, Genevieve’s boyfriend (Gen is her ex bestfriend). Another is Lucas, whom she adored because he was polite. John, who she had a romantic time with. Lastly is a guy from a summer camp she attended. 

She wrote them goodbye letters so she could move on. On the letters, she included the address, sealed it, but never mailed it. She keeps it to herself – but then it got sent away. The 4 guys received the letter, one didn’t because he migrated.

Lucas turned out to be gay, that’s what he said when he returned the letter. John never had the chance to talk to her. Josh received it too and became uneasy towards her, and Peter gave her back the letter laughing.

Josh confronted her and she has to pretend that she’s dating someone else, because she really doesn’t want to hook up with her sister’s boyfriend, even though she loved him first before Margot did. She ended up pretending to be Peter’s girlfriend to avoid Josh, and for Peter, to make Gen jealous so he could have her back.

On that winter, they were skiing. Peter said that he started liking her. She was stunned, although she knows that she liked Peter too because who wouldn’t like him? Josh doesn’t matter anymore. She made up her mind. She found Peter on a hot tub, she told him she likes him too and they kissed for a long time.

Morning  came and it was the time to leave. She went to the bathroom and there was Genevieve. Gen told her that Peter was just using her because it was really her that he loves. Their fake relationship was all because of Gen and there  is this rumor that she just had sex with Peter on the public tub. She got mad at Peter because she thought he wasn’t denying it and was just allowing the rumor to spread. Peter loves to be praised for anything and maybe he loves to be praised for hooking up with the innocent Lara Jean.

Margot came home from Scotland (that’s where she studied and that’s why she broke up with Josh) and she arranged a recital where they prepared cookies and invited guests. Lara Jean was still mad at Peter that time although deep inside she misses him and was just waiting for a text from him. Peter showed up on that recital because Kitty invited him and asked Lara if they could talk. They talked and Josh joined. Peter got mad at him and brought up that Josh tried kissing Lara before, and it was too late that time because Margot heard all of it.

Margot and Lara fought but they made up immediately, and there was also a chance that Margot and Josh will get back too. Meanwhile, Lara Jean proceeded with writing a letter to Peter , but it wasn’t a goodbye letter. She made it for a good start.

Also part of the story:

Their mother died while she was mopping the floor and the landline rang and she slipped. She woke up and she was okay. Then one day she complained of a headache and she slept on the couch and didn’t wake up.

It was Kitty who mailed the letters because she was mad at Lara since she almost told Josh that Kittle likes him. Lara originally thought that the hatbox got sent to goodwill by her father.

There was one night when the rain poured so hard, and i didn't want it to stop. Weird, because i was afraid and amused by the sound of the rain and thunder. The sound of it made me less alone that night. The next day i woke up to find my collection of journals soaked. I keep it near the window to make sure no one could read it. The writings can still be read but i was devastated by the damage. I wanted it preserved but i don't want it published. Still amused by the rain but afraid of the wrath it could bring to my journals, i created this blog.
