The sequel has arrived on Netflix, so let’s get The Kissing Booth 2 book ending explained. Audiences may notice some changes.
Netflix has fired out some notable film gems over the years and rom-com fans have had plenty to cherish.
Arguably, one of the most satisfying arrived back in 2018.
Of course, we’re talking about The Kissing Booth, directed by Vince Marcello and starring the likes of Joey King, Jacob Elordi, Joel Courtney and Molly Ringwald.
Across the film we watched Elle and Noah’s relationship develop and her friendship with Lee strain, but it all worked… until the sequel ushered in new problems, obviously.
As you’ll be aware, the latest film is an adaptation of the novel The Kissing Booth 2: Going the Distance, written by Beth Reekles.
Let’s shed light on it so that audiences can compare and contrast the film and book.
The Kissing Booth 2 book ending explained
Right, let’s get a grasp of the story told in the second book.
We centre in on Elle and Lee reunited as great friends while the pressures of sustaining a long-distance relationship plague Elle and Noah.
The relationship encounters some pretty hefty speed bumps throughout the book, with the biggest being Levi, the new kid. It seems like he’s captured the hearts of the entire school, but you guessed it…
He only has eyes for Elle!
Then, we also have Amanda, a classmate of Noah’s whose presence on his social media leads Elle to become suspicious of a potential relationship. Although he insists there’s nothing going on she breaks up with him anyway.
During this time we witness the gradual blossoming of a connection between her and Levi, but things really pick up on Thanksgiving. Elle celebrates with Lee’s family while Noah brings Amanda to spend time with his.
After it all becomes too much for Elle, she meets with Levi and the pair kiss. There’s one big problem though: Noah saw. As highlighted by Bustle, there’s also the fact that the kiss itself did nothing for her, failing to ignite a spark leading to them taking things to the next level.
Her and Noah then talk things over and he explains that him and Amanda are strictly friends, so they get back together.
So to wrap things up, the ending sees Ellie and Noah back in a romantic relationship while remaining friends with Levi. She is also accepted into Berkley alongside Lee.
While this may seem like an all-round happy ending, there’s the sense that Berkley will prove the ultimate test for their love.
Fans are tucking into the film
Needless to say, it’s clear that fans are thrilled to welcome the arrival of the sequel film over on Netflix.
