P.S. I really like this book.
In P.S. I Like You by Kasie West, Lily is caught daydreaming in Chemistry class and is banned from using her notebook during class. To not completely die of boredom, Lily resorts to writing song lyrics on her desk. Much to her surprise, someone responds. Lily quickly befriends her new pen pal, however, it may not be the person that she expects.
I think that people will either love or hate P.S. I Like You. The best way that I can describe this book is your typical high school romantic comedy. If you are looking for something extremely deep and original, then this book probably isn’t for you. However, if you are a huge fan of high school rom-com classics, like A Cinderella Story, then you will love this book.
One of the main reasons that I like Kasie West’s books is that I feel like I can relate to the characters, even if I haven’t necessarily been in their situation. For example, I was never like Gia from The Fill-In Boyfriend, but I really identified with how she felt throughout the book. Similar Lilly in this book, even though I’m not a songwriter or into really obscure bands, I really identified with her character. Lilly is introverted, slightly awkward, and makes jokes that no one else thinks is funny which resonates well with this book’s target audience.
I also really enjoyed this book because it was very fun to read. Even though this book is littered with tropes, it made me really happy to read and I found myself smiling throughout the entire book. Since it was so light and fluffy, I couldn’t put it down and finished the book in a few hours. Even though this book isn’t necessarily earth-shattering, I think it is a great book to read during the summer or if you want to take a break between books with more “serious” themes.
Overall, P.S. I Like You is a fun book that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and definitely want to read again. Even though it isn’t necessarily the most deep or original book, it hooked me in and I couldn’t put it down. I rate P.S. I Like You with five out of five stars.
