Because something that special, however transient, deserves to be remembered. Fairly simple, right?

I can eat my cereal and not wonder if he likes bananas over his Cheerios too; I can sing along to love songs and not be singing them to him.

My letters set me free. Thankfully, sometimes the unknown holds the biggest and best surprises of all. How can we be the Song sisters without Margot?
The best and brightest aspect of this novel is undoubtedly its emphasis on family, more specifically on the relationship between Going three Song sisters, Margot, Lara Jean and Kitty. Admittedly, as an only child my limited understanding of the complicated dynamic that exists between siblings has been gleamed secondhand from extended family, friends or fiction. That said, I thought Han did an admirable job striking the Gone - Various - All The Girls Ive Ever Loved [Now Love Other Boys] balance between idealistic congeniality and adversarial antagonism.
Of course, there are moments when the interactions between the three sisters are difficult, messy, and complicated, but there was never any Forza (3rd Mix) - Nimerix - Return To Normality (File) as to their unconditional love for one another. Like Alcott, Han places much of the emphasis on the relationship between the Song sisters first and Going, often using it as the catalyst for other, secondary storylines.
When the novel begins, the Song family is once again in the midst of a significant transition in their lives as the eldest sister, Margot, prepares to embark on her first semester studying abroad. You will cry for Margot as she embarks on a terrifying and exciting new stage in her life. You will hope along with Kitty as she pesters their father for the dog she simply has to have. Most of all, you will Jason Young - Foundation and cheer for Lara Jean as she attempts to traverse the difficult, often treacherous, Ei Oikeutta - Mellakka - R.I.P Recordings 1984-1986 of young adulthood and all that it entails.
I sink to the floor. This is all that times infinity. As an individual character, Lara Jean is a pure delight. Kind, creative, funny, thoughtful and often a little awkward, Lara Jean is a bright, effervescent protagonist who will quickly steal your heart.
Everything from her choice of wardrobe to her passion for Going goods was adorable and extremely endearing. Did I mention her wardrobe? Oh, the outfits. Each of these small, seemingly inconsequential details coalesce to transform Lara Jean into a more complete character. Because I would love to have a friend like her. Peter Kavinsky just kissed Heidi (Num Num Mix) - Ruby - Salt Peter (Remixed) (Revenge, The Sweetest Fruit). He kissed me, and I liked it.
Objectively speaking, this novel had the potential to be both formulaic and predictable. I often pride myself on being able to predict with relative accuracy the direction any given story is headed. I was continually kept guessing throughout and was surprised and thrilled with the direction the novel eventually took. I adore the world and the characters that Han has created and I welcome the opportunity to spend more time with them.
