to all the boys I've loved before by Jenny Han

By the author of The Summer I Turned Pretty (which I also really enjoyed)

If you are looking for a great summer read, look no further! I loved everything about this book and read it in two days. I know  many girls will pick this book up and declare it as one of their very favorites.

Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean has never had a real boyfriend, but she has been in love exactly five times. Each time, she writes a letter to the boy and pours out all her feelings and emotions.  She can be very honest because when she finishes the letter, she seals it in an addressed envelope and hides it away. The boys will never see these letters, but it is a way for Lara Jean to get over her obsession with them.

This seems like a very healthy way to deal with her emotions, until the day she arrives at school and heart-throb Peter is holding her letter and wants to know why she wrote it. 

I loved the characters in this book, especially Lara Jean and her two sisters. This book could have been just a fluffy, beach read, but each character was complex and interesting. I would recommend this book to mature girls looking for a contemporary romance.
