Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad's finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and sister Margot is coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding. But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father's wedding, she can't ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean's the one who'll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family -- and possibly the boy she loves -- behind. When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?

A nice continuation and conclusion to Lara Jean's trilogy of love and high school. After reading the second book in this series, I had felt it could easily have ended there with its sweet and swoony finish. In this outing, what felt at the beginning as a day-to-day journal of Lara Jean's life, shifted into a poignant and endearing story by the end. I actually felt an emotional tug a few times throughout. Overall, I enjoyed the realistically written and entertaining series.

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.

Great book. It was a bittersweet ending to this trilogy

"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

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.
