Happily, Cathcart’s no longer the one who has to construct the option. (Because she’d obviously take John Ambrose — appropriate sort reading between the traces here.) And by the finish of the anticipated Netflix sequel, Lara Jean has made her desire. How Kitty feels about her sister’s conundrum, nonetheless, is no longer if fact be told decided. But Cathcart thinks she’d serve Lara Jean it does no longer subject what; in any case, the Covey sisters are the coronary heart of those movies, are no longer they?
