Eleanor & Park – Rainbow Rowell

5/5 Teen Loves

On The Back:

Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.

Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.

Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.

Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.

My Thoughts:

Wow, I love it when you pick up a really popular book and simply fall in love with it. This book was amazing. Seriously, amazing.

The characters were perfect int he fact that they weren’t perfect. They seemed real and alive and that makes a good book.

The who premise of the story is just so good. My heart almost tore in pieces in parts of this book and I found myself laughing out loud at other parts.

This was an amazing book that I highly recommend. Please do yourself a favor and check it out from your library or buy it. You won’t be sorry.
