Teen Book Review: To All The Boys I've Loved Before

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves cutesy romance novels. The book is about a girl named Lara Jean who writes a love letter whenever she falls in love with a boy to get over them and she keeps it in a box in her bedroom until one day her letters are stolen and mailed out and Lara Jean has to deal with what happens next. 36 more words
