Summary from Goodreads:

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 Margot’s 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 her sister 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?

My Opinions (SPOILER FREE):

This was a very cute, adorable story overall, but a lot was left unresolved for me. And that was disappointing because I felt like the whole point of this book was to conclude everything that had been left unresolved after the second book. But a lot of the unresolved things from book 2 weren’t resolved in this book either.

The plot of this book was also not very strong. Not a lot was going on, and I got a little bored sometimes.

Overall, I don’t have a whole lot to say about this book. It was a short book, but I think Jenny Han did a pretty good job of wrapping things up. I’m glad I read this book, I was just hoping for some more satisfaction.

I do recommend this trilogy as a whole for sure, and I think the second book was my favorite, although it’s been a really long time since I’ve read the first book, so I don’t know for sure.
