Always and Forever, Lara Jean
Behind the Scenes at the Always and Forever, Lara Jean Cover Shoot
Find out what it was like at the Always and Forever, Lara Jean cover shoot with author Jenny Han! See if you can guess which props belonged to the author when she was in high school.
This cover shoot was insanely fun. The model, Helen Chin, has been with us since the first book. Helen's the exact same age as Lara Jean, so she has aged right along with the books--16 for To All the Boys I've Loved Before, 17 for P.S. I Still Love You, and 18 for Always and Forever, Lara Jean.
I brought in a lot of my own things for this shoot. The pink hairbrush, the framed picture of Leonardo DiCaprio, the little teacups, the perfume bottles. I wanted the space to feel as personal and as real as possible. There are also some things from my high school bedroom-- you can't see it here, but there's a gold spray-painted picture from Romeo + Juliet on the floor. I spray painted it myself! Teenage me was very into Leo.
“Sweetly funny.” (Entertainment Weekly)
* "Han's story is timeless. First love, finding one's identity in school and at home, and navigating the delicate transition from child to adult are all universal themes in young adult literature, and Han does a great job exploring them. She has written a sweet, coming-of-age love story that will surely please fans of the first two books who are likely clamoring for this conclusion." (VOYA, starred review June 2017)
"Featuring the same endearing sister relationships, mouthwatering descriptions of Lara Jean’s cooking, and timeless coming-of-age conflicts, this final volume in the series will continue to delight Han’s fans.... Sparkling dialogue, swoon-worthy scenes, and likable characters make this a gem of a selection for most YA collections" (School Library Journal May 2017)
"A must-have conclusion....Fans of Han’s best-selling series will turn out in droves to get their hands on this conclusion to Lara Jean’s story." (Booklist May 2017)

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS BOOK FOR LIKE EVER.
I have missed Lara Jean for YEARSSSSS.
So thank you Jenny Han for finally giving this book to me. So before I even started this book, I swear, I looked at it and said... "Damn you Lara Jean, you better still be with Peter and stay with him for the rest of your life or I will drop this book into my fireplace and never read you again." (Yes, I can be that dramatic). Luckily the book is still intact with no fire damage.
So, Always and Forever, Lara Jean, is a follow-up to Lara Jean's story. In this book you are following her throughout her senior year of high school, and boy is she busy. She's preparing for college, her dad is getting married, her sister Margot is coming home, oh and she's still in love (like head over heels baby) with boyfriend Peter. She wants everything to stay on its course and go has planned...but of course Jenny couldn't let that happen. What good is a book without the main character going through something. It isn't, so of course Lara Jean's plans get ruined and now she has to change her plans drastically.
I love how Lara Jean's character continues to grow and I am actually really sad that there's not going to be another book. Also, I enjoyed getting more of the sisters too :) I think I read a review on the book and it said "A world without Peter Kavinsky would be a very sad world indeed" AND I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THAT. I am so happy they didn't stay broken up--because again...I would've burned this book without looking back. If you haven't noticed I love his character and I love their relationship. Honestly they are so darn cute and are truly a realistic high school relationship. They are going through relatable decisions that an everyday high school student goes through, heck even college or adults.
The one character I 100% did not like was Peter's mom. I wanted to bitch slap her so hard. I hope no parent treats her like that ever.
I will definitely be re-reading this trilogy for as long as I live because I just love Jenny Han and her writing. I really need to read her other books. Please don't ever stop writing Jenny :(
This surprise follow-up to Lara Jean’s story follows her through her busy senior year. She’s preparing for college, head over heels in love with her boyfriend Peter, her dad is getting married, and her sister Margot is coming home for the summer. She has made a plan, and is ready for the next chapter. But when her plans get a major wrench thrown in them, she has to decide what to do, and where to go next.
I really enjoyed this last book. We got plenty of Kitty, Margot, and lovable Lara Jean. I just wish there had been more of Peter and Lara Jean together. I mean, there were scenes with them obviously, but I’m selfish and wanted more. Their relationship has really grown since the last book. They are having more meaningful conversations about deeper and more personal topics. I wanted more of that. I wanted to see more of Peter and Lara Jean discussing their hardships with each other. But I will say, that their lack of being 100% honest with each other does come into play in the book. No spoilers here – so I’m just going to leave it there.
What I like about Peter and Lara Jean is the fact that they seem like real teenagers. They aren’t overly mature for their age, but they aren’t immature either. They make poor choices without thinking, but then they are really thoughtful in their decisions in other ways. I felt Han portrayed typical 17/18-year-olds very well.
Lara Jean still seems a little, not immature, but maybe childish, in the way she sometimes acts/thinks in the book. I’m not sure if it is Lara Jean the character, or just how Jenny Han writes – this is the only series of hers I’ve read.
All in all, I’m really happy I read this series, and this final installment. I was very satisfied with the ending, and where Lara Jean’s path was headed to next!
