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

Always and Forever, Lara Jean is the final installment to the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before Series. The main character, Lara Jean, is living her senior year to the fullest. She has a picture-perfect boyfriend who she’s planning on going to the same college, her dad is about to get married again, she continues to make a strong bond with her sisters, and she goes on many class trips. However, things start to go downhill when she doesn’t get accepted into her dream college, UVA. She has to wonder where she will go and what she will do with her future because going to UVA was her only plan.

I would give this book five out of five stars. All the characters were extremely loveable. I found myself relating to Lara Jean often. She loves baking, strives to do well in school, and enjoys keeping items, even if they aren’t of much value, for memories, which are some things I also like to do. One of my favorite lines from the book is as Lara Jean is cleaning her locker, she tells her friend Lucas how she’s sad to part with old stuff and he jokingly mocks her. “Lucas can mock me for being nostalgic all he wants” (Han 234). This is one of my favorite lines because I too also get sad when parting with nostalgic items, even if there is no point in keeping them. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy a good romantic read.
