'The Kissing Booth 2' is going to put Elle (Joey King) in a very tough spot and that is to choose between her friend Lee Flynn (Joel Courtney) and her boyfriend Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi). We see in the trailer of the sequel that Elle spent a beautiful summer with her boyfriend Noah after having dealt with all the conflict that rose from her relationship with him.

However, it's been 27 days since he flew to Harvard for college, and Elle's still in high school. On her first day back in school, Elle goes through this phase where doubts about her relationship crop up after her classmates tell her that Harvard is a place where there are girls who are intelligent and beautiful, which will ultimately lead to Noah straying away and their relationship coming to an end.

However, the person who seems to be wavering is Elle herself, who meets a new student -- Marco (Taylor Perez) -- and is wooed by him. The trailer also features a scene between Elle and Marco which shows him asking her if she is sure about her relationship with Noah and how one shouldn't let go of a relationship that makes them feel alive. The doubts that Elle has about her relationship with Noah, especially after he covers up the fact that he has been spending more time with a new friend whom he met at Harvard, shows things don't look good.

To add to this, Elle has also decided to go forward and break another promise that she had made to her best friend Lee. The two had decided to go to Berkley together because that is where their mothers had become best friends too. However, upon Noah's request, she decides to apply to Harvard as well but it looks like she doesn't share this with Lee. We see him find the brochures and application pamphlets for Harvard in her car trunk and he is shocked.

He confronts her. We do not know how this confrontation influences their relationship. However, what we do know is that Elle is confused about her feelings for Noah, and seemingly walks out at one point if we were to go by the trailer and also manages to alienate her best friend in the process. 

If you think this sounds suspiciously close to the plot of 'To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You', you are right. Only, 'The Kissing Booth 2' has included a subplot of Elle's relationship with Lee that runs in parallel to her relationship with Noah and Marco. Does this film spell the end for Elle and the Flynn brothers or will she salvage her relationship with her best friend and her boyfriend? We will see that in the film.
