Chapter 4 Summary

Lara Jean reunites with her oldest friend Chris. Despite their major differences (Chris smokes, hooks up with boys, and talks back) and the fact that Chris isn’t around all the time, the two girls get along well. Chris and Margot butt heads when Chris hangs out at Lara Jean’s house, and Chris expresses her belief that Margot leaving will be good for Lara Jean; Margot’s departure will let Lara Jean feel freer to enjoy her own time, according to Chris. Lara Jean invites Chris to join her at the nursing home she volunteers with, but Chris is more eager to get Lara Jean out dancing.

Chapter 5 Summary

Kitty and Lara Jean help Margot pack for Scotland while their father cleans the house. As they pack, Margot gives the girls reminders of household operations as Lara Jean searches Margot’s face “for sadness or fear or worry, for some sign that she is scared to go so far away, that she will miss us as much as we will miss her. I don’t see it, though” (23). Later that night, as the girls go to sleep together, Margot asks Lara Jean if she’s ever been in love, but Lara Jean doesn’t respond. The truth is, Lara Jean is secretly also in love with Josh, Margot’s now ex-boyfriend.
