Personality[edit | edit source]

Chris is very outgoing, spontaneous, and energetic. Unlike Lara Jean, she loves to socialize and frequently attends concerts and parties.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Family[edit | edit source]

Chris and Genevieve don't really get along, despite being cousins. Chris believes that Gen is spoiled and entitled because she always gets what she wants. The two constantly oppose each other, especially since Gen likes to mock Lara Jean, Chris' best friend.

Friends[edit | edit source]

Lara Jean and Chris are best friends. They are practically inseparable. Lara Jean is the more sensible one while Chris is the wild, outgoing one. In To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Lara Jean says that Chris is her oldest friend. Although Chris is Gen's cousin, she is always there to defend Lara Jean against Gen.

Chris approves of Lara Jean's relationship with Peter. She believes that he has a positive effect on her and believes Peter makes her happy. She seems to be on good terms with Peter, although they don't often interact with each other. She is, however, skeptical of how loyal Peter is to Lara Jean considering his past with Gen but loses said skepticism after P.S. I Still Love You when Peter actively chooses Lara Jean over Gen.

Love Interests[edit | edit source]

In the books, Chris and Trevor do not interact with each other at all. However, it is stated in P.S. I Still Love You that they used to be childhood friends. In To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, Trevor and Chris meet again when they retrieve the time capsule they buried when they were children. They get along well and are seen together several times afterward, eating lunch at school together and hanging out. By the end of the movie, it becomes evident that the two are now in a relationship. In To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Chris goes to the prom with Trevor and they keep dating, even though Chris decides to move to Costa Rica.

Others[edit | edit source]

Chris and Margot do not interact much in the books but they seem to not get along very well. Chris believes Margot is too uptight, while Margot believes Chris is too carefree.

Chris and Kitty are quite similar in that they are both rather carefree and energetic. Because of that, they get along well and Kitty looks up to Chris.
