Waiting on Wednesday: Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles we can't wait to release.

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han. 320 p. Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, April 4, 2017. 9781481430487.

Publisher synopsis: Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the New York Times bestselling To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You.

Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.
But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.

When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?

Jenny Han's debut, Shug, is one of my most favorite middle grade novels. Then she made the switch to YA where my eighth grade girls love our library copies of The Summer I Turned Pretty and their sequels to death! The Lara Jean books are equally popular.
