This book takes awhile to get going. I was trudging through thinking, "Let me just finish this book and I won't read the next one," because I hate to not finish a book. But at about 60% (kindle), I suddenly was glued to my screen - suddenly invested in Lara Jean's drama.
Surprisingly, this book is equally about Lara Jean's relationships with her sisters as it is about boys anyone loved before. It is heavily focused on how Margot and Lara Jean have become who they are and their dedication to their family from dealing with their mom's death when they were young. I don't personally have a sister, so maybe that's why I couldn't relate to this aspect of the Book; it was simply lost on me.
Lara Jean is neurotic and a bit of a goody two shoes, which for me made her very unlikeable. But as the story (finally) starts to get going, her interactions with her little sister and fake-boyfriend Peter bring out her charm. She's a doe-eyed good girl with a love of whimsy and a slightly mischievous side.
I, however, did enjoy the love... Venn diagram, I guess? There's a lot of she liked him, but he was with her, but now they're broken up, but now she likes this guy who still loves her ex best friend and she likes... Etc. It sounds exhausting when put that way, but it was never confusing and came together naturally. It was the most enjoyable part of the book for me.
Final rating is: first half of the book two stars, last half gets four, for an average of three. I'm definitely going to read the sequel. To All The Boys I've Loved Before starts slow, but develops into a sweet coming of age with heavy dash of romantic drama.
