They say not to judge a book by it’s cover, but that’s exactly what I did. During the summer of 2016, I picked up To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (the first of three books) in Target after being drawn to the cute room plastered on the front of the book. Author Jenny Han created the character I swoon over – Peter Kavinsky. Sarcastic but gentle and kind-hearted Peter plays the role of Lara Jean’s fake lover, which eventually stems a real romance.

 

Peter often picked up Lara Jean (after they initiated a fake relationship) in his Audi convertible. Her sister, Kitty, would sometimes beg to have him drive her to her school. Like the heartthrob he is, he rolled around in the mornings unashamed in his mother’s minivan so that he could take both sisters to school. And when lucky (and Lara Jean unlucky, for being forced to ride the bus), Kitty got rides in the two-seater, too.   

 

Over the course of his and Lara Jean’s fake and real relationships, Kitty grew attached to Peter, and vice versa. At one point, Peter begged Kitty to teach him some of her dance moves, and while he did it to impress his girlfriend, he made Kitty the happiest. She even taught him to braid hair so that he could do it for Lara Jean when she couldn’t be around. How adorable.

 

Besides being great with kids, Peter knew how to surprise Lara Jean in the sweetest ways. Even after agreeing to never be more than five minutes late to get her, he picked her up late for an estate sale. Why? Because he wanted to buy her freshly baked mocha sugar donuts, which she loved. In second book P.S. I Still Love You, Peter took note of a jewelry piece that Lara Jean loved but didn’t have the money for. Han revealed later in the book that Peter had purchased it for Lara as a Christmas gift.

 

Though popular, Peter always showed Lara Jean attention. He even showed her off around his lacrosse team. She baked Peter cookies all the time and he’d brag about them to his friends, never failing to put a smile on her face when he did.

 

Peter Kavinsky has officially set my expectations high. Though sometimes arrogant and cocky, he redeemed himself through kind and thoughtful gestures. He spiced up Lara Jean’s life, and if he were real, I’d love to fake-date him.
