This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Set in Virginia. Set in Oregon.
   Josh is mentioned frequently, but is not present in the book. No mention of Josh at all.
   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, near the end of the book. The book does not have details of the trip other than the plans they made for it prior to leaving 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.
   Peter is going to UVA on an athletic scholarship. Peter and Lara Jean tour the UVA campus. Peter is going to Stanford. Lara Jean has applied to Stanford but is waiting for an acceptance letter. She dreams of rooming with Peter, marrying him and starting a family.
   Lara Jean is accepted at the College of William and Mary, but decides to go to UNC instead. Peter does not like that it is twice as far away from UVA. Peter's family cannot afford to give up a scholarship nor can they afford out of state tuition in North Carolina if Peter wants to go to the same college as Lara Jean. Lara Jean is accepted at Berkley. Peter is happy with this, but Lara Jean decides to go to NYC instead. This makes Peter unhappy.
