If you’ve taken even just one scroll through VSCO, checked your Instagram explore page or opened Netflix within the past two weeks, you’ve caught a glimpse of it. A stylish asian girl with a tall brunette boy? Something about love letters, or maybe even a ski trip?

Since the release nearly two weeks ago, Netflix’s “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” has been all over, just like Lara Jean’s letters. It has even championed the spot above “The Kissing Booth,” which was deemed holy by many in July.

But what makes it so appealing to so many KHS students? I speculate that its success is due to nailing the iconic moments of being a teenager that also happen at KHS, while glamorizing the parts that aren’t so true to life.

If you haven’t watched it, here’s for you to decide.

Unavoidably having to be in the car with bad drivers.Students use their lockers and have plenty of time to chat.The Corner Cafe that must have been based off of Spencer’s Grill.How students actually eat in the cafeteria.The infamous ski trip, or should I say Senior Camping Trip.Being bundled up in fall apparel for the first day of school.Over-analyzing most social media interaction.Wearing school gym clothes.Circles forming in the halls anytime drama evokes.Walking through a lacrosse practice without getting yelled at.

Is "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" so Kirkwood or so far-fetched?
