"I've never gotten a love letter before.
But reading these notes like this,
one after the other, it feels like I have."
- Lara Jean

โœง Plot

Lara Jean writes letters to boys she feels an intense passion for and locks the letters away in her closet. Her latest letter is to her childhood friend Josh, who is dating her older sister Margot. When Margot moves to college, she breaks up with Josh.
At school, Lara Jean is confronted by a crush of hers, Peter Kavinsky. Peter reveals he was mailed his letter, causing Lara Jean to faint. After waking up, she sees Josh approaching with his letter and, in a moment of panic, Lara Jean kisses Peter.
Peter proposes to Lara Jean fake dating each other to make his ex-girlfriend Gen jealous (she is also Lara Jean's ex best friend). She agrees and the two make a contract.

โœง Rebecca's Outlook

Finding the true love isn't easy, especially for who is scared of love and Lara Jean knows this well. That's one of the reasons why I found her really relatable: just like me or any girl in the Universe, she loves fantasizing about love, but she is scared of getting hurt. This movie gives you valuable lessons about this and others themes.

Plus the Asian-American cast is outstanding, especially the stars Lana Condor and Noah Centineo which have an amazing chemistry on and off-screen.
The story per se is really pure and the script is well written.
I suggest you to watch this movie (if you hadn't already) before the sequel To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You comes out on February 12, 2020.
