Book: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Lara Jean goes with Peter to an estate sale and this is her conversation with the owner of the house who happens to be an old man:

Jenny Han cover

“That’s my daughter, Patricia.”
I turn around. It’s an old man in a navy blue sweater and stiff jeans. He’s leaning against the staircase watching me. He looks very frail; his skin is paper white and thin.
“She lives in Ohio. She’s an accountant.” He’s still gazing at me, like I remind him of someone.
“Your house is lovely,” I say, even though it isn’t. It’s old; it could use a good cleaning. But the things inside it are lovely.
“It’s empty now. All my things sold up. Can’t take it with you, you know.”
“You mean when you die?” I whisper.
He glares at me. “No. I mean to the nursing home.”

    Haha, oh dear. I think we’ve all suffered a moment of foot in mouth. But can Lara find the things inside lovely when he says the house is empty?
