An Interview with Jenny Han, Siobhan Vivian, and Morgan Matson
From late nights studying together in graduate school to late nights trying to meet their publishers’ deadlines, Jenny Han, Morgan Matson, and Siobhan Vivian have stuck together through it all. Find out how this trio of YA writing powerhouses met, why friendship is so central in their stories and in their lives, and, most importantly, which of their characters would fall in love with each other.
How did the three of you become friends and why do you feel it’s important to have a close group of supportive friends?
MM: We all met in graduate school in New York City a decade ago! And we’ve stayed friends ever since.
SV: Dude. Was that really ten years ago? Feels like ten minutes.
MM: I know. I didn’t want to believe it either.
JH: In some ways it feels like twenty years ago to me! What I really love is that even though the three of us no longer live in the same city, we still go away on writing retreats together and do book tours together. Our books keep us close.
MM: Jenny organizes the most amazing writing retreats. We all hang out and write and catch up. It’s a yearly highlight.
SV: I feel it’s so important to have friends who understand this weird thing we all do. I can ask Morgan and Jenny anything…from the business side (is this deal point in my contract too aggressive?) to the creative side (where’s a fun place my two characters can make out?).
MM: And it’s so great to have friends you can text when you need story advice, or just to commiserate with someone who understands the process. It makes what can be a pretty solitary job feel a lot less so. Also, Jenny is a genius book-title-er.
Do the three of you have similar or different creative styles? Do you approach writing your books in a similar way?
JH: We have really different creative styles. I write a first draft almost like a series of vignettes, never in order. It's very spare. I figure out the shape of the book as I piece it all together.
SV: I think Morgan’s a lot like me, because she also has a background in screenplay writing, and we enjoy thinking about structure, all the narrative places a story could potentially go.
MM: It’s true! And as for my process, I can’t write out of order—I need to write in a linear fashion, straight through to the end. And I don’t really have an outline. I have a vague idea of where I want to go, but that’s it. I like getting some surprises along the way.
SV: Same here. I feel like Jenny intimately knows her characters from the first page, whereas I have to put them on a journey and make them do stuff in order to discover who they are.
Which characters from your respective books do you feel would be friends with each other? Who would get along the best? Would any of your characters have crushes on each other?
SV: I’ll say that John McClaren from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Levi Hamrick from The Last Boy and Girl in the World would be friends. They both have a quiet nerdy confidence about them.
MM: I think Andie from The Unexpected Everything would definitely have a crush on Jesse Ford from The Last Boy and Girl!
SV: I was thinking that also, but I don’t think Andie and Taylor from the Summer series could be friends IRL. Andie is like a dressage show horse and Taylor is like a wild pony.
JH: Natalie from Not That Kind of Girl would be friends with Margot from To All The Boys I've Loved Before. They're both driven, high-achieving girls with bright futures.
MM: Emily from Since You’ve Been Gone would totally be friends with Lara Jean from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You. I think they have similar personality types! I can see them hanging out at home together and cooking.
JH: I can also see Lara Jean having a crush on Roger from Amy & Roger's Epic Detour because—mix tapes!
MM: Lara Jean would introduce him to doo-wop girl groups and Roger’s life would never be the same.
What’s the one piece of advice you would like to give aspiring writers that you wish you had when you first started out?
JH: I would tell them not to be in a rush. Because, yes, it is absolutely amazing to be able to write for a living, but there is also something truly wonderful about writing just for you, just because you have to, because you can't not.
MM: Read a lot, and write a lot. Don’t expect to be a perfect writer on the first try—writing is a skill, and just like any other skill, you get better at it the more you do it!
SV: Find friends who will support you, who understand your work, and who know how to get the best writing out of you. You don’t have to do it alone! That’s what keeps the three of us together.
"Lara Jean’s personality—goofy, awkward, prone to strong emotions, and entirely naïve when it comes to boys—give this touching story an individuality and charm all its own. Han creates a realistically flawed cast, especially half-Korean Lara Jean and her sisters, who work hard to be good to one another after their mother’s death (even when they’re at one another’s throats)." (Publishers Weekly, starred review on To All the Boys I've Loved Before)
"An ultimately compelling exploration of teenage growth and young love." (Kirkus, on To All the Boys I've Loved Before)
A wonderful choice for fans of Sarah Dessen and Stephanie Perkins. (Booklist March 15, 2014)
In this lovely, lighthearted romance...readers will remember the Song sisters and the boys in their lives long after the final page turn. (School Library Journal, Starred review on To All the Boys I've Loved Before)
"The sparkling dialogue, heartwarming sister relationships, and honest talk make this a must-have title for teen collections." (School Library Journal)
"A sweet and charming sequel that is sure to be devoured by fans of the first book." (Booklist)

I had a little bit on anxiety when starting P.S. I Still Love You. I adored To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before so much. This one had some big shoes to fill and I made the mistake of reading the summary for this book. Another boy!? Noooo! Peter K. is all you need Lara Jean! I shouldn’t have fretted. I love the way everything unfolded.
P.S. I Still Love You picks up right where the first book left off. Lara Jean has a lot of character growth in this one. She definitely seems older and less naive. She’s a bit more adventuress and less goody-goody too. I loved her just as much. Her voice is just so endearing. You want to be friends with her. Her family plays an important role in the book, too. I felt like everyone was a bit more developed and their relationships were even better this time around. Oh how I adore Kitty! I think she has made it onto my favorite characters list. She’s just so spirited and fun!
Now for the worrisome part, the romance. Like I said, the summary gave me some major anxiety. Things go south very slowly for Lara Jean and Peter. It was a little heart-wrenching to witness. I definitely felt like their break up was justifiable. Lara Jean had every right to be angry and feel betrayed. I was all prepared to hate the other guy that comes into the picture, but I just couldn’t! He was charming and sweet and really liked Lara Jean. Sigh. Peter was always number one in my heart though.
The ending felt a bit rushed and confusing to me. Peter had done some pretty crappy things and I feel like he never fully owned up to them. Lara Jean took a lot of the blame and I don’t understand that. I also felt a little annoyed with Lara Jean’s confusion about why Genevieve stopped being friends with here. I thought that was explained pretty well in the first book. Those were just small annoyances. I wish that more time would’ve been spent on the ending, but I still really loved the book.
P.S. I Still Love You was a fantastic sequel. It was just as cute and fun as To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. I’m so happy that Jenny Han and the publishers listened to the readers and decided on a book 3. I would hate to see it end there. Plus, I just want all the Lara Jean, Peter, and Kitty I can have.
When we left off Lara Jean had realized she still loved Peter and wanted to fix things. She had written five love letters and had received word from all but one. As she starts something real with Peter it becomes a bit more complicated as her other love and letter come into her life as Peter makes some decisions that don't sit well with Lara Jean. We see everything for the first time through the very distinct and quirky Lara Jean.
Now this story has me hooked. I want to know what will happen next for Lara Jean so badly. She is such a sweet and innocent girl who has all these dreams and ideas but is also happy in her comfort zone and afraid to really step outside of it. This story really makes her step forward in a lot of ways. She is forced to be bolder than she has and take charge of her life. She is experiences many different emotions all at once and for the first time which for anyone would be confusing. The way it is written is just so sweet and enduring that you get caught up in the whole of it and feel it all like it was happening to you. Also can I just say how much I adore that she’s a baker because I do love that aspect of her character. She has mentioned so many ideas that have now been added to my list to try.
There were times when I was back and forth on what I wanted to happen. I admit to wavering at points given the information available at the given time. I wanted Lara Jean to find happiness and was caught up in every moment of this heartfelt story. I enjoyed this story so much that as I lay listening to this story around 80% through I had to go and buy the third book right then. Yep no waiting for an extra credit to be available or anything I just knew that when I finished this one I was going to want to continue ASAP. And while things did resolve in the story enough that I had to start the next one right away I still am looking forward to starting it this week. There is just so much going on with Lara Jean between her love life, family, and friends I am excited to see where things go for her.
I can’t really discuss too much about the story because you should enjoy it as it progresses but the characters were there. I got to see more with the sisters, the always late coffee spilling neighbor, the boys, and my favorite to learn more about were the residents at the retirement community. They had such diverse backgrounds and fun stories to explore plus being at their age they are set in their ways and able to say/do whatever they want because why not. I loved the play off of them. I can’t wait to see how Lara Jean’s journey ends in the next book.
