My Experience: I started reading To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before on 10/13/2015 and finished it on 10/16/2015. This novel is a good read and a cute book with an interesting topic. The main character, Lara Jean is the middle sister. She likes to bake, loves her sisters, don’t like driving, does scrapbooking, stays home on Friday nights, and have silent crushes. She writes letters to to the guys to get over them but one day the letters got sent out without her knowing and life just got a little complicated for her. I enjoy reading this book. I like the humor, the positive family atmosphere, and the high school drama that is not so wickedly mean but an easy going one. I am looking forward to reading the sequel. I would recommend this book to middle & high school levels because it’s simple. Passing hand written notes in class or between class, I did too! Who does that nowadays with texting available, but hand written notes are so much cuter!
Pros: fast paced, page turner, Sisters, good family atmosphere, easy going, some humor, crushes
Cons: book is so easy going that I fall asleep once or twice while reading, few typos,
I rate it 4.5 stars!
