Eleanor & Park
Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.

... 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.

    5 glowing stars - touching, yet heartwrenching story of young love...I will admit that I have had Eleanor & Park sitting on my TBR pile for a LONG time.... a REALLY LONG time. One of those books that I wanted to read, but just wasn't sure was for me. I am so excited to have final...

    He made her feel like more than the sum of her parts. Eleanor & Park was the very first Contemporary I ever read, and this book is probably the reason why I love contemporaries so much. Maybe because they're quirky and small, but also because of the detail the romance has in it. O...

    “She never felt like she belonged anywhere, except for when she was lying on her bed, pretending to be somewhere else.”I randomly decided to read Eleanor and Park again because I have no chill.Also, I recently picked up Fangirl (for the tenth time), so that definitely had a w...

    I should have read Eleanor & Park during winter, when it’s freezing outside.Because it completely warmed my heart, and it’s so hot already, I thought my heart would burst into flames inside my chest.Believe me or not, but I always thought I was immune to the usual young a...

    “I don't like you, Park," she said, sounding for a second like she actually meant it. "I..." - her voice nearly disappeared - "think I live for you."He closed his eyes and pressed his head back into his pillow."I don't think I even breathe when we're not together," she whispered....

    4.5 starsThis book first appeared on my radar when I read that a group of parents had tried to ban the book in a Minnesota high school district. If there's any sure way to get me interested in a book, create controversy over it...I started this book four or five times before I got into...
