Synopsis: Signed, sealed, delivered…
While spacing out in chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favorite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk and added a message to her. Intrigue!
Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters—sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. Only, who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can’t always be spelled out…
Review: I heard a lot about Kasie West and it is true that the reviews are always fantastic. I never had the opportunity to get into one of her novels but the release of PS: I like you in French was a good opportunity. I was really eager to finally read one of her stories.
I must say that at the beginning of the novel, that is to say for one or two chapters, it was complicated to enter the narrative, but after that moment I let myself be completely carried away, to the point that I couldn’t put it down without finishing it. Ouep you understand well, I read it in one go and I can tell you that nothing could distract me!
We discover Lily, a girl a little apart, discreet and who would like, one day, to be able to share her passion for songs that she loves to write but that she never succeeds in finishing. But then, Lily’s life will change when in Chemistry, she starts exchanging words with another person whose identity she does not know about. It was very touching to see her confide and help this other student. What is a shame is that with the French translation we know right away whether it is a girl or a boy. But it’s only a detail but it’s true that when she realizes it, we already know.
As I said, I loved to follow the exchanges of the two characters. I knew pretty quickly who was behind it all but it was very interesting to see her refuse to know, to think, to make hypotheses but especially to see her try to help him. Lily’s life is fun to discover, her family is full of freshness and what about the rabbit that terrifies everyone? Yes we easily connect to all the characters, all Lily’s brothers and sisters of but also to her friends and we wait with impatience to see what will happen.
I will not say more but it’s very good YA story. I was really taken away by the narrative and the adventures of each protagonist. If the others are in the same vein, I can not wait to read them. I also hope that we will have the chance to have new ones in French!
This does sound fun with the unknown letter writers and the music element. I would definitely like to read this one. Glad it was translated into French for you. 🙂
Yes it was nice to see it translated
I just found this one on sale a couple of weeks ago. It’s sitting in my tbr pile but I think after reading this I might be adding it closer to the top! Thank you.
I hope you’ll like it when you try it!
I loved the review. Been hearing awesome things about this book. Glad that you enjoyed it. ❤️
I love all her stories, they are just so cute and fun!
yes I agree
I like the idea behind the anonymous letter writer. Great review.
Interesting about the anonymous letter writer. Great review. Glad you enjoyed it.
I’m so glad you stuck with this and it paid off! It’s interesting that in the French translation it was kind of hard to follow at first and I can totally see it. I get lost in teen dialog ALL the time 🙂 Kasie West is pretty great, though, for fluffy romance! Great review!!
yes it was a sweet one
I keep hearing some fantastic things about this book and I am thrilled to hear that this one was a enjoyable read for you. I don’t read YA, but I am tempted by this one.
I can understand
Aww cute cover
This sounds good! 🙂
I haven’t read anything by West either, but I hear good things! I’m glad this was a fun one.
Glad this was good, and that you were able to get into it after getting past the beginning. It looks like such a summery read- nice cover too!
that’s true, it was
Her books always look so good and have cute covers. I’m glad to see you were able to get into it after a little bit 🙂
So glad you enjoyed it! You should read The Distance Between Us. I love that one!
thanks I will keep it in mind
I haven’t read this author but I agree this does sound good.
I have only read one Kasie West novel and it was just ok for me. I do want to read more of her work and this one sounds like fun. Glad you enjoyed it!
West’s novels always seem so cute but they rarely work for me, for whatever reason. Still, I’m glad you enjoyed this one!! Great review!
