This is the sequel to the book To All The Boys I've Loved Before. Lara Jean is in her senior year and she's having a great time. She has so much ahead of her such as the class trip to New York, Prom with her boyfriend Peter and so much more. After that, she's off to college with Peter by her side. What could possibly go wrong? Unfortunately for Lara Jean she was given some not so great news, that will change the rest of her life. Soon enough things start going downhill. Her relationship and all of her plans are put on hold as Lara Jean must make some pretty rational decisions on how she will move on with the next chapter of her life. I think this book is easy to relate to as some of us may have experienced things like this, making decisions that we might not like. This book shows that sometimes not everything is about doing what others want. It's about doing what you want to do and whether or not you will be happy doing it. I would give this book a 4.5/5 star rating.

I loved the first two books in the series, and this was definetly a good way to emd the series. Would love if there was another book, but the end of this book really ties up some losse ends. A bit confused at some parts, but i pretty much understand.

Perfectly good book, but I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the first two books in this series. Where they were focused more on relationships, this book was more focused on school - specifically on where Lara Jean would be going to college.

I thought this was a fitting conclusion to the trilogy about Lara Jean. I listened to the first two books and the reader was great. And I enjoyed reading this one in print. I like the Covey family and all their friends and relatives. The characters are likable and realistic.

Not nearly as good as the first two books. Seems like the characters changed their personalities and lost themselves. Ok read but not a page-turner.

"Always and Forever Lara Jean" is the first book to ever make me happy about a closure. It wasn't disappointing but amazing and hard to let the characters go. I felt like I grew up with them and was that creepy fan watching their love story grow.
In the book, we see a side of Peter that we didn't get to see. It was really nice.
Overall, this had me in tears. Jenny Han did it once again. Hope to see more of her

Lara Jean and Peter are still together as they start their last year of high school. They dream of going to UVA together. There’s a lot going on in their senior year, with seemingly endless graduation celebrations. The plot hinges on whether or not they will stay together in college. For people who liked the other two books in the series, it’s nice to see the continuation of their relationship. There are some weird plot points that I found annoying. Lara Jean lets Peter purposely exclude Josh from her father’s life, even though Josh had been very close to their entire family. Margot has pretty much no redeemable traits in this book, unlike the other two where she seemed to at least like her family. Peter’s absent father is introduced for no real reason. The most frustrating part of the book is how easily swayed Lara Jean is by those around her, but that’s very true to how high school is. Supposedly this is the last book about Lara Jean, and it is a good sendoff for her. A part of me hopes we see a book about Kitty someday. She seems like the most interesting and entertaining character in all three of the books!

We’re all just counting down, passing time. Everyone knows where they’re going, and the right now already feels like it’s in the rearview. Suddenly life feels fast and slow at the same time. It’s like being in two places at once.
