“Elle Evans just had the most romantic summer of her life with her reformed bad-boy boyfriend Noah Flynn,” the official Netflix synopsis for the film reads. “But now Noah is off to Harvard, and Elle heads back to high school for her senior year. She’ll have to juggle a long-distance relationship, getting into her dream college with her best friend Lee, and the complications brought on by a close friendship with a handsome, charismatic new classmate named Marco (Taylor Perez). When Noah grows close to a seemingly-perfect college girl (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), Elle will have to decide how much she trusts him and to whom her heart truly belongs.”

The Kissing Booth is currently available on Netflix. And The Kissing Booth 2 hits the streamer on July 24.
