To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
To All the Boys I've Loved Before Book Series
What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once?
Quotes from the author:
When someone's been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them. You try to keep track of everything in your head. But it's like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand: all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you're just clutching air and grit.
Love is scary: it changes; it can go away. That's the part of the risk. I don't want to be scared anymore.
You'd rather make up a fantasy version of somebody in your head than be with a real person.
Life doesn't have to be so planned. Just roll with it and let it happen.
— Jenny Han
