This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Peter's mom tells Lara Jean that Peter wants to transfer to UNC to be with Lara Jean after a year in UVA. Peter has a scholarship at UVA, but would have to pay very expensive out of state tuition to be with Lara Jean at UNC. She asks Lara Jean to break up with Peter so that Peter can concentrate on his studies and lacrosse at UVA. This does not happen in the film.
   Dan decides to propose to Trina while on a hike to a river. Peter, Lara Jean and Kitty sneak (Dan knows) to the river ahead of them to make a video of the proposal. Trina gags on a cough drop when Dan proposes, but she happily says yes. Lara Jean sees her Dad at Trina's house across the street through a window proposing to her.
   Lara Jean and Peter go out at night to watch a Perseids meteor shower. Peter tells her about the time he first saw her in 6th grade. Peter and Lara Jean sleep together the night of her dad's wedding while her dad and Trina are away on their honeymoon.
   After sending the deposit for William and Mary, Lara Jean is accepted at UNC. She tours the UNC campus with Chris; both their cell phones are dead so she is unable to tell her dad that she will be late going home. She gets home at 3am and her dad is very upset; but less upset when he learns she got into UNC. This does not happen in the film.
   Dan Covery sends the three girls and their Korean grandmother to South Korea on vacation six weeks prior to Lara Jean's first year of college; the trip takes place after the end of the book. The book does not have details of the trip other than the plans they made for it prior to the trip and how it interferes with Peter's plans to socialize with Lara Jean during the summer. The film starts with Dan, Trina and the girls in South Korea on vacation the summer after Lara Jean's junior year. Dan tells his daughters that he wants to marry Trina, the girls approve. While at a "love locks" bridge in Seoul, Kitty meets a young Korean boy who takes their photo. She exchanges letters with him after the vacation.
