Lara Jean is having the best senior year. And there’s still so much to look forward to: a class trip to New York City, prom with her boyfriend Peter, Beach Week after graduation, and her dad’s wedding to Ms. Rothschild. Then she’ll be off to college with Peter, at a school close enough for her to come home and bake chocolate chip cookies on the weekends.
Life couldn’t be more perfect!
At least, that’s what Lara Jean thinks…until she gets some unexpected news.
Now the girl who dreads change must rethink all her plans—but when your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?

This book wasn’t at all necessary but it was cute and lovely and I did very much enjoy it, even though nothing really happened. I didn’t notice until I finished that there wasn’t much going on it was about planning a wedding and Lara making plans for after high school. And there also some baking and senior year shenanigans. This book has less drama then the other two in a way it’s good and I’m so glad the there was no Genevieve drama Genevieve is hardly even in this she’s in like one page and that was enough for me. What little drama there was wasn’t too interesting it wasn’t unnecessary but it was something I’ve seen done a million times.
I had a blast reading this because everything was so cute and sweet this trilogy, that shouldn’t really be a trilogy, has so much charm. These are the perfect fluffy reads the writing is simple and lovely and I always read them so fast. Despite being so darn adorable these books are also emotional the they always have moments that make me tear up because there just so sweet.
Always and Forever Lara Jean is one of the only books I’ve read that focuses on deciding what to do after high school. I have read books that take place during senior year but in them the characters are unrealistically not worried abut getting into college, even though they apply to prestigious schools, that they always get into. I think Jenny Han did a great job of capturing the stress of deciding where to go to college and all the bittersweetness of graduation. But I was disappointed that Lara Jean never mentions what career she wants or what she wants to major in it’s fine for her not to know but she should have at least been thinking about it.
