Lara Jean! How I've missed you and Peter and of course, Kitty. I've got to admit that I forgot how parts of the story of the previous book played out including the hot tub incident which becomes a whole situation in this sequel. No matter. I felt the recurring end of the incidents' "repercussions" especially with miss worry as our main character. Although, that's actually not fair. If I was Lara Jean I would have had a panic attack after what happens in this story.
Peter and Lara Jean's relationship becomes real this time around, but now they must navigate what it's like to be in a relationship. I've seen comments where people think Lara Jean can be too whiny. Honestly I may have thought she has some flaws in the first book but this time around I acknowledge that she can be a little too inside her head, but she's a teenager! She compared herself a lot to Genevieve (Peter's ex) and I get it. You know I imagine it must be rough to be in a relationship as a teenager. During that time and when you first go through puberty it makes it so you basically think everyone is looking at you when they're not. They are really inside their own heads freaking out about their own insecurities. So I understood where Lara Jean was coming from and had no problem with her insecurities especially since she grew in her own way.
There's this whole thing with Peter and Lara Jean and Genevieve and this new kid John. It's a whole dilemma which Lara Jean has to sort through to find the truth, trust, and love. The story made me so happy because I needed to know what happened with Lara Jean and Peter. Oh Peter, how you make me happy... I'd say if you enjoyed the first book you'll enjoy P.S. I Still Love You. Just get ready for a little angst which you should already be ready for since you've met Lara Jean.
