Rating Summary
“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” is based on a best-selling YA novel by Jenny Han, and inspired by her own teen years, when she would write letters to the boys she had crushes on, but never send them. “I write a letter when I have a crush so intense that I don’t know what else to do,” Lara Jean (Lana Condor) tells us.

High school junior Lara Jean Covey writes letters to boys she feels an intense passion for before locking 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. Lara Jean has always had a crush on Josh and decides it would not be okay to date him. One night, while hanging out with her little sister, Kitty, Lara Jean falls asleep on the couch. Kitty sneaks into Lara Jean’s room and finds her collection of letters. The following Monday at school, Lara Jean is confronted by a former crush of hers, Peter Kavinsky. Peter reveals he was mailed the letter Lara Jean had wrote him, causing her to faint. After waking up, she sees Josh approaching with a letter of his own, and in a moment of panic, Lara Jean kisses Peter on the school track to throw Josh off before running off.

After waking up, she sees Josh approaching with a letter of his own, and in a moment of panic, Lara Jean kisses Peter on the school track to throw Josh off before running off. Lara Jean then encounters another recipient of a letter, Lucas, who comes out as gay as she begins to realize that all the letters have been mailed out. She later left her house when Josh showed up unannounced. Lara Jean then encounters Peter at her favorite diner. She explains to him that she was merely trying to make Josh think that she has lost interest in him. Peter is surprisingly okay with this, and proposes that he and Lara Jean fake date each other to make his ex-girlfriend (Lara Jean’s ex-best friend and nemesis) Gen jealous. Lara Jean agrees, and the next few months go by with the whole school, along with their respective friends and families, believing that the two are dating.
