Chapter 9 Summary

Lara Jean wakes up already dwelling on the things she will miss out on by not going to UVA: living at home, her sister’s first period, Kitty’s birthday. She recognizes that the sisters will all be separated, but Kitty will still have Trina. Meanwhile, Kitty asks her if she can move into Lara Jean’s room when she leaves. At school, Lara Jean visits Mrs. Duvall to tell her she didn’t get accepted, who is shocked but not worried about her overall prospects. When she tells Chris, Chris reveals she’ll be moving to Costa Rica to work on a farm for a year. Chris suggests Lara Jean give Peter a sexy photo of herself. Lara Jean suggests a scrapbook of all their best moments together.

Chapter 10 Summary

Mrs. Duvall had told Lara Jean to expect an answer from William and Mary that day, so now she can’t focus on anything else. Unexpectedly, she hears instead that she’s been wait-listed at University of North Carolina (UNC). She is beginning to worry about her prospects and doesn’t eat her lunch. Peter suggests she could transfer from William and Mary or U of R to UVA after a year; he seems relieved to have a plan, and so does Lara Jean.
