Lily starts communicating via secret letters with an unknown person during Chemistry (different classes) They share a love of music and start sharing their inner most feelings and problems and joke about writing a song together.

At this point I am a sucker for a good Kasie West book! She writes fun realistic teen fiction that is light-hearted and will make you go "awwww!" all without being too cheesy :) In this book the main character (Lily) scribbles some song lyrics on a desk, and someone in another hour finishes the lyrics and writes her a note! Soon Lily has a full on pen pal and possibly a new crush. I know, sounds clique, but I thought it was engaging and well written.

This book was a really cute romance novel. The characters were fun-loving and sweet. It was nice to see the main characters go from sworn enemies to desperate lovers.

Freaking amazing!! I loved it, literally couldn't put it down. I spent 5 hours reading it straight through no snack breaks or anything (Which is big for me (; I love food) I read the whole thing last night right after basketball practice and stayed up till 2am. I won't spoil anything for you but what I can tell you, is that it was worth all 5 hours. Definitely gonna check out more from the Author!

As far as gushy Rom-Com teeny bopper books go, this was done excellently! It had a "You've Got Mail" vibe, and the characters were solid!

Lily and Cade have been sworn enemies for longer than they can remember and are constantly scrutinizing each other. One day, after Lily scribbled some song lyrics on her desk out of boredom the day prior, she found that someone has replied to her. As these conversations continued to develop, Lily finds herself bonding more and more with her pen pal. Chemistry, her once most hated class, soo became the highlight of her day and was always looking forward to it. But curiosity killed the cat and once she found out who her mystery writer was, she starts to question all she knew about him. This was a pure love story that showed us how sweet high school love can be. I enjoyed the concept of writing lyrics in desks and having someone reply to them and I really liked the dynamic balance between the two main characters. Their personalities were very sweet and real, yet different. Overall, I loved this book and hope to read more from this author Rating: 5/5

Such a cute story! Lily isn’t what you would call mainstream, she has her own style. Living in a family of five other people, her life gets pretty hectic. While spacing out in chemistry class one day, Lily writes some lyrics to her favourite indie band on her desk and the next day another person finishes the lyrics. They start to exchange letters about their personal life: family, friends, music and jokes. Lily finds herself telling this person things about herself that she doesn't even tell her best friend.
Told through story and exchanged letters, you really get to understand Lily and her anonymous pen pal. This story is amazing because it's relatable and you never expect the second writer to be who they are. Rating 5 out 5 stars.

"P.S. I Like You,“ written by Kasie West, was an interesting book. I found using letters as a way of communication very unique since nowadays, we are all about cell phones and the internet. Because the pace was too slow for my liking it deserved 3.5/5 stars. The plot became more intriguing near the end because there were more action and connection between the main character and her partner. This pushed me to finish the book. If I were to compare this book to "The Distance Between Us,” also written by Kasie West, I would choose that book.

3.5-4 Stars

This book got off to a slow start along with a feeling of predictability. It started picking up for me at about 25%. Overall, it's a cute YA novel, but not the best when compared to previous Kasie West books or current books within this genre. Yes, it was a bit predictable, but readers within the actual age group that it's intended for should enjoy the story arc and sweet outcome.

(SPOIL ALERT ISHH, not really just for those extra people who get pissed easaly)

A girl, coming from a big family and also who has a very particular interest in music (a musician herself) always finds herself bored in chemistry class. She writes some lyrics to a song that she enjoys, on top of her class desk. Same old chemistry class was then forever changed once she noticed that someone had finished her lyrics. Amazed, she wrote back and so did this mystery person. They continued to go back and forth unknowingly falling for each other. She then figures out who this person is and to say the least, was surprised. The rest of the story is for you to read (;

A story of friendship, a story of, you don't always know who people are and what they go through, and a story full of amazing, page turning words!

Comment in the middle of the book if you have any guesses on who might be the mysterious person. The book is kinda predictable if you have a thinking brain but just wanted to see who else got it right... okay I'm done!
