Eleanor & Park


Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell (2013)

Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.

Set over the course of one school year in 1986, Eleanor & Park is the story of two star-crossed misfits – smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love – and just how hard it pulled you under. (Author’s website)

    I read Eleanor & Park once and then I had to read it more and more, it is the best book I have ever read! I absolutely love how they were together but I hated the ending.

  2. I loved this book too. I stayed up until 2 in the morning to finish it. I thought the ending was a little sudden but I thought it was hopeful at the same time. I liked how their romance started off so slowly. I remember being surprised when Park first held her hand. The main characters were so likeable and real. I was happy that this book at least came in third place.
