Summary (from Goodreads): What if the person you were falling for was a total mystery?

While Lily is spacing out in Chemistry one day, she picks up her pencil and scribbles a line from one of her favorite songs on the desk. The next day, someone else has written back to her on the desk! Soon enough Lily and the mystery student are exchanging notes, and lyrics, and even sharing secrets. When Lily finds out that her anonymous pen pal is a guy, she’s flustered — and kind of feels like she’s falling for him. She and her best friend set out to unravel the identity of the letter writer — but when the truth is revealed, the guy is the LAST person Lily could have ever imagined it to be. Now that Lily knows the truth, can she untangle her feelings and gather the courage to listen to her heart?

From beloved author Kasie West (The Distance Between Us) comes an utterly charming story about mixed messages, missed connections, and the magic of good old-fashioned secret admirer notes.

P.S. I Like You was my first Kasie West novel and since I enjoyed it so much, I’m going to have to read some more! This book is all about a mystery pen pal and contains a main character who is awkward and relatable. I loved reading about her big family as well.

This book is such a cute read for the summer. This book is about a girl who ends up with a mystery pen pal after writing down some lyrics on her desk in Chemistry. I loved being able to read each of the notes exchanged between Lily and the mystery boy. The suspense leading up to the big reveal was also really well done and super enjoyable to read.

The main character in P.S. I Like You is so relatable. Lily is awkward and has a great sense of humour which I really appreciated. What I found interesting about her is the fact that she is a songwriter and interested in a songwriting competition. I love characters with a story and a personality, and Lily is definitely one of them.

One of my favourite things about P.S. I Like You is how Lily’s family is so big! She has two younger brother and an older sister who play a signifiant part in the story. I enjoyed how realistic this family was and how it was clear that Lily just wanted some peace and quiet. Family is one of my favourite things to read about and I was so happy to see one in this book.

P.S. I Like You is a cute summer read about two pen pals in science class. The main character is so relatable and her family is written so realistically. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone looking for a quick read.

    I can appreciate an author who takes the take to build a family for their character, or members of their family and not make them caricatures. That doesn’t happen often enough methinks
