Chapter 13 Summary

Lucas, Chris, and Lara Jean discuss the pressure of prom, and whether it really will be perfect. Lara Jean is going with Peter, and Chris is adamant she will not be going at all; Lucas is not sure, since he won’t have a date. Lara Jean is worried because her birthday is the next day, and she wants to see her friends; Chris assures her the only thing she’ll be thinking about is “los[ing] your V that night” (194). Chris defends the cliché of losing your virginity the night of prom because she says most people will never look as good again in their lives. Lara Jean affirms she expects to lose her virginity during college, out of her house, as an “adult.”
