P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

SynopsisLara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.
She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.
When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?

Review: P.S. I Still Love You had every bit of charm To All the Boys I Loved Before had. Lara Jean has to make major adjustments in her life and she faces consequences to events that occurred in the first book. I enjoyed seeing how she navigated life as more and more people saw the video between her and Peter on the ski trip. It really highlights the double-standard that appears when people discuss sex for men and sex for women. This doesn't get discussed nearly enough. I also loved seeing Lara Jean interact with the people at the nursing home. Jenny took time to show how relationships can be for people from other generations. We see this through Alicia and Stormy, Lara Jean herself, and even her dad. I think it's great to showcase the similarities and differences between generations and how they view relationships. 

One other thing I enjoyed was how we get to see Lara Jean struggle with her suddenly real relationship with Peter. A lot of this book is her recognizing things are different between them now because everything is real. This impacts the way they handle friendships and conversations between them. It felt like these scenes were done with an extraordinary amount of care. Like Jenny wanted readers to feel these struggles and love with Lara Jean. I know some people don't like how John was incorporated into the story, but I like it because it helps highlight the different ways a person can love. These relationships started out as crushes, but, with Peter, Lara loves him as a close family friend. John could be a potential love interest, but he is still more of a past love for Lara. Lucas is someone Lara loves as a best friend. As someone who has to navigate between these different loves herself, this whole series has meant a great deal to me so far. P.S. I Still Love You has great discussions of friendship too. We see Lara and her sister Kitty struggle with growing up and losing friends. Even though they are sisters, Jenny manages to make each experience feel unique which was fun to read. 

Adorable story with some great character conversations
