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, 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.

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!

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.

Kasie West delivers another great YA romance!

The book is delightful -- I enjoyed the dynamic of long-form letter writing and even passing notes in this age of texting. The suspense of whether a note would be discovered or intercepted, and the growing physical evidence of the (anonymous) relationship added to the drama. Highly recommended.
(Side note: email is never even mentioned -- the author is definitely in touch with the trends of modern teenagers!)

(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!
