Putting my head on his shoulder, I yawn and say, “I wish we could go to Levain Bakery so I could try their cookie. It’s supposed to be like no chocolate chip cookie you’ve had before. I want to go to Jacques Torres’s chocolate shop too. His chocolate chip cookie is the definitive chocolate chip cookie, you know. It’s truly legendary.   .   .   .”

I finally picked up Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han because I wanted to read the last book in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series before the Netflix movie came out (which I loved). I really enjoyed this final book as Lara Jean prepares to go away to college. It really felt like a bittersweet book, but an appropriate farewell to a really beloved character. You can read my review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

From the Goodreads Synopsis:

      “Lara Jean is having the best senior year. And there’s still so much to look forward to: a class trip to New York City, prom with her boyfriend Peter, Beach Week after graduation, and her dad’s wedding to Ms. Rothschild. Then she’ll be off to college with Peter, at a school close enough for her to come home and bake chocolate chip cookies on the weekends.
      Life couldn’t be more perfect!
      At least, that’s what Lara Jean thinks…until she gets some unexpected news.
      Now the girl who dreads change must rethink all her plans—but when your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?.”
