P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
In a new young adult take on You’ve Got Mail and The Shop Around the Corner, Kasie West crafts a truly emotional story. Lily Abbott really hates chemistry class and in her boredom scrawls a lyric from one of her favorite esoteric bands onto her desk. She’s surprised to see that the next day, someone has written the next line from the song. So begins a correspondence through notes hidden in the desk with a mystery pen pal that seems to understand Lily like no one else. I read P.S. I Like You in one sitting, actually forgoing some sleep. I couldn’t put it down. While somewhat predictable, I still thoroughly enjoyed watching the story play out and listening to the two characters write their hearts out to each other. This novel was simply a feel-good read.
