Book Review | PS I Still Love You

Jenny Han’s sequel to To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before takes you on an equally thrilling journey involving boys, baking and a whole lot of emotions.

The story centers around Lara Jean and her relationship with her new boyfriend Peter. I admired that the novel addressed cyber bullying and the effects it has on a personal level but also the effect it has on the community. When it comes to emotions, Jenny Han is the Queen, oftentimes I found myself sighing at just how accurately she described adolescent love from a male and female perspective.

The novel does not get weighed down by the emotions in it though. Han finds an admirable balance by involving baking (I might try one of her recipes on here oo), fashion and Lara Jean’s relationship with her sisters. She also focuses on some heavier topics of single parenting and growing up without a mother. The novel is a healthy blend of all things life.

Something I haven’t come across often in young adult novels is elderly people. Especially elderly people having a perspective or any say in the novel. This novel depicted young love from the perspective of the elderly who are long past it yet they still yearn for their days. It added quite a unique element to the novel. Sometimes the elderly need a little spotlight too.

From caramel cakes to dreamy boys and retirement homes, Jenny Han writes a light yet thought provoking novel that is perfect to read any time of the year.
