Eleanor and Park

By: Rainbow Rowell
Location: FIC ROW
Genre: Young Love :)

Eleanor & Park reminded me not just what it’s like to be young and in love with a girl, but also what it’s like to be young and in love with a book.”—John Green, The New York Times Book Review

Hmm can you met someone when you are a teenager and truly know love, what if you are both misfits, not the cool kind. What if for whatever reason others say you don't fit, different races, ages, family values. Well for the record, I met my man when I was 17 and we are about to celebrate our 28 wedding anniversary so there. You go Eleanor and Park- you show them it can be done, just like we have!!!
As for this book- it is a smash hit in the USA at the moment, and we got it here before it has got too famous, so I would read it now, so you can skite later!!

Bono met his wife in high school, Park says.
So did Jerry Lee Lewis, Eleanor answers.
I’m not kidding, he says.
You should be, she says, we’re 16.
What about Romeo and Juliet?
Shallow, confused, then dead.

I love you, Park says.
Wherefore art thou, Eleanor answers.
I’m not kidding, he says.
You should be.
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this 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. Eleanor & Park is the winner of the 2013 Boston Globe Horn Book Award for Best Fiction Book.
