Every time Lara Jean falls in love and it doesn’t work out, she writes the boy a letter for closure. She pours her heart out in the letter, addresses the envelope, seals it, and puts the letters in her hat box and keeps them there…until one day, the hat box is missing and so are the letters. They've all been mailed out—including the one to her most recent crush, her older sister's boyfriend.
“…Lara Jean’s personality—goofy, awkward, prone to strong emotions, and entirely naïve when it comes to boys—gives this touching story an individuality and charm all its own. Han creates a realistically flawed cast…”—Publishers Weekly, Starred review
“If you dig awkward but sweet teen romances, this dramedy of errors will have you in YA heaven.”
“Most teens will guess the outcome but enjoy the many twists and turns along the way in this lyrical novel. Readers will remember the Song sisters and the boys in their lives long after the final page turn.”—School Library Journal, Starred review

Belly lives for her summers at Cousins Beach. But when the beach house tradition is threatened, she faces the season without her second family and without the boy she loves. After the death of his mother, Conrad has shut down, refusing to talk to Belly or anyone else. When he suddenly leaves school without explanation, his brother, Jeremiah, recruits Belly to help. The trio find themselves at Cousins Beach after all, and the memories and feelings of the past come flooding back. Complicated
and fragile, Belly's relationships with the two boys are put to new tests as she and Conrad come to terms with their relationship, and Belly and Jeremiah begin to build a romantic bond of their own.
“Fans of the first book will enjoy this continuation in which nothing is easy for Belly, but the end result is worth the heartache.”—School Library Journal
“Flashes of humor, realistic (and often salty) dialogue and growing-up moments both painful and authentic create a convincing and poignant read.”—Kirkus

Belly has only ever been in love with two boys. And after being with Jeremiah for the last two years, she's almost positive he is her soul mate. Almost. Conrad has not gotten over the mistake he made when he let Belly go even as Jeremiah has always known that Belly is the girl for him. So when Belly and Jeremiah decide to make things forever, Conrad realizes that it's now or never—he must tell Belly he loves her, or lose her for good. Belly will have to confront her feelings for Jeremiah and Conrad and face a truth she has possibly always known: she will have to break one of their hearts.
“…vividly depicts the emotions of a girl on the brink of womanhood, impatient to make all of her dreams come true.”—Publishers Weekly
“Han's impressive ear for and pitch-perfect reproduction of the interactions between not-quite-adult

Annemarie Wilcox, “Shug” to her family, is starting to think there is nothing worse than being twelve. She's too tall, too freckled, and way too flat-chested.

How can Shug prepare for tomorrow when there's just no figuring out today?
