I love Jenny Han´s books. I believe she is remarkable writer. But I have a confession to make, the last book I read by her it didn´t turn as great as I was expecting, so I was kind of scared with this one. However all those fears were forgotten when I read the first page of the book.
P.S.I still love you, is the second part of the Lara Jean story, a sweet naïve girl with strong feelings, who fall in love in an unusual way and since then is living a romance experience with a dreaming boy for the first time.
In this book, Jenny Han, puts into practice its majestic ability to make the reader feel every emotion unfolded in the story. The writer invited us to walk with Lara Jean in her path to growth, as a sister, daughter and friend but most of all as the person she wanted to be.
The narrative style is fresh, and intensive, amused and heartbroken all at the same time. The description of each character and the every scene are completely effective. The dialogues are well done writing which help the story flow rightly.
Besides the sweetness of first love, the writer also discusses with subtlety the cyber bullying, a current problem among adolescents.
I was hooked from the beginning, however almost at the end I was starting to feel like some strings would be loose. But the writer knew how to tie them wisely, giving the best end ever. “A real end”.
Definitely Jenny Han knows how to touch the heart of her readers with her words.
Finally, I just need to say that, the perfection of a book heavily relays on the opinion of each reader and its influence on them. Because of that, for me this book is absolutely perfect, the story, plots, characters, writing style, and so on. Therefore I awarded it with five stars.
If you like stories by Katie MacGarry, Stephanie Perkins, Kasie West... This book is for you. You are not going to regret.
