FAN THEORY: Lara Jean Covey and Sierra Burgess Exist in the Same World
Hold on tight, y’all! Why? Because you’re about to be absolutely SHOOK by the latest fan theory that suggests that To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and Sierra Burgess is a Loser take place not only in the same world — but in neighboring towns!
You heard that correctly, folks! We were just innocently scrolling through Twitter when we came across a tweet from @IAbbeylynn2, and while we normally don’t pay much attention to conspiracy theories such as this, we have to admit that this one simply demands attention.
Are you ready for this? Apparently, Abbey thinks that To All The Boys‘ Peter Kavinsky and Jamey from Sierra Burgess are actually the same exact person. Say whaaat? But, before you brush this off as just another ridiculous fan theory, hear her out! You know at the end of Sierra Burgess when Jamey so easily forgives Sierra for catfishing him? Well, maybe that’s because he was catfishing her at the same time by pretending to be Jamey in the first place! Hmm…
he isn’t that mad at sierra for catfishing him because he is doing the same to her. he is also in love with lara jean. when lara jean thinks peter is on the phone with gen he is actually talking to sierra (veronica).

If you really think about it, it makes a ton of sense. Jamey and Sierra don’t go to the same school, so it’s totally possible that Jamey is actually Peter IRL and that at his actual school, he fake dates and eventually falls in love with Lara Jean. Of course, this would challenge literally everyone’s theory that Peter Kavinsky is a heaven-sent angel and would instead suggest that he’s absolute trash, but it’s still worth considering as a possibility!
While this is definitely an interesting theory that we found to be highly entertaining, it clearly has some holes because, at the end of TATBILB, Peter is dating Lara Jean, and at the end of Sierra Burgess, Sierra is dating Jamey. That would mean that if Peter and Jamey are, in fact, the same person, he’s gotten himself into a pretty messy situation. We mean, dating two people at once?! That’s not the Peter Kavinsky we know and love!
Although there’s very little merit to this theory, thank you, Abbey, for opening our eyes to the possibility that these two movies could take place just towns apart. Alas, we’ll stick to the idea that Peter Kavinsky is just as perfect as he seems to be in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. It’s less stressful that way.
