cute, contemporary, young adult, romantic & funny!
I am in my 30's but I totally would recommend this book to people who liked YA fiction.
I love the characters!
I like how the protagonist, Lara Jean, is just a plain, nice girl. Her mom passed away but the author doesnt rehash it over and over. Lara has a bossy older sister who had to become "mom" too soon and a spunky younger sister who goes by kitty. Her whole family loves each other; they're not mean to one another like what you see on a lot of popular tv shows these days.
The guys in Lara Jean's life are also pretty colorful! Peter K and his ex Genevieve were practically "an institution at the institution" of their high school. Did you know, Peter also plays lacrosse? And Lara's sister's ex boyfriend Josh (who also lives next door to Lara Jean) is a super sweet, adorkable guy. He's so easy to root for!
I also found the book comparatively funny to most YA fiction I've recently read. Seems to be a trend of dystopian/doom and gloom so it's nice to read something lighter every now and then!

Kitty, the little sister.
Lara Jean's inner thoughts.
Lara's 'boyfriend' to Lara Jean: "You hate cussing. You like to bake. You stay at home on Friday nights. Wow, I'm dating my granny. Gross."
I have never listened to LKK's other performances but I REALLY this audiobook. I've maybe listened to 3 or so audiobooks and this one, by far, has been the best listen. I thought it was silly when I heard this book had a "director" but, I mean, maybe it was worth it because I wasnt "blanking out" or having to really concentrate on listening bc I found the performance pretty easy to listen to.
I was smiling the whole time during this book. It's so fun.
If you're "scared" of boys and/or tend to dote on guys way out of your league (or celebrities), add this book to your device, NOW!
