to all the boys i've loved before

 

 

Lara Jean never meant for the letters to see the light of day.

It’s too late now. All five letters have been mailed. Now all five boys she’s ever had a crush on have received a love letter that they were never meant to see.

Josh, her next door neighbor and sister’s ex, received one. So did Peter, a popular boy at school.

In order to convince Josh that she’s over her crush on him, Lara Jean pretends to date Peter. Peter agrees to make his ex-girlfriend jealous.

But what is real and what isn’t in her relationship with Peter?

about the author

jenny han

 

Jenny Han (as in Han Solo) went to grad school soon after graduating from college. While there, she started writing her first book and submitted it for workshop. She got a call that night from her teacher, telling her to finish the book and to send it to the teacher’s agent. Since many publishers wanted her manuscript, it was sold at auction by her new agent.

So Jenny’s journey into publication was a bit of a whirlwind. Now she has many published books.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was inspired by her own life She would write love letters to boys when she was trying to get over them. They could get up fourteen pages long! It provided Jenny with a sense of closure, and thankfully, her letters were never mailed.

Her favorite time of day is 8 p.m. Her favorite article of clothing is knee socks. And if she could have any superpower, she would choose the power of charm.

Jenny grew up in Richmond, Virginia. She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
