At the end of last month, I subscribed to the subscription box called OwlCrate which is one that is entirely YA related. A few weeks ago I received my first Box in the mail and was eager to discover the goodies it held. There were items that tied back to Harry Potter and also to Eleanor and Park. This book was the centerpiece. P.S. I Like You has a cheesy title but is a super adorable novel. While it was predictable, I adored this book. It was an amazingly fast read that had me empathetically nervous throughout. Lily is a very relatable character. I was in a similar social group in high school, except the whole awful at Chemistry thing, I loved Chemistry. Seeing Lily fall in love through words was very refreshing. Letters always seem like a thing of the past, particularly with the evolution of technology bring us texting and email. It has made me want to start hand-writing letters more often. I definitely recommend this book to those who love YA and love stories.
