Description

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

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.

Publishers Weekly Review

Dec 10, 2012 – Half-Korean sophomore Park Sheridan is getting through high school by lying low, listening to the Smiths (it’s 1986), reading Alan Moore’s Watchmen comics, never raising his hand in class, and avoiding the kids he grew up with. Then new girl Eleanor gets on the bus. Tall, with bright red hair and a dress code all her own, she’s an instant target. Too nice not to let her sit next to him, Park is alternately resentful and guilty for not being kinder to her. When he realizes she’s reading his comics over his shoulder, a silent friendship is born. And slowly, tantalizingly, something more. Adult author Rowell (Attachments), making her YA debut, has a gift for showing what Eleanor and Park, who tell the story in alternating segments, like and admire about each other. Their love is believable and thrilling, but it isn’t simple: Eleanor’s family is broke, and her stepfather abuses her mother. When the situation turns dangerous, Rowell keeps things surprising, and the solution—imperfect but believable—maintains the novel’s delicate balance of light and dark. Ages 13–up.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful Read

I could not put this sweet love story down. Being a teen in the mid 80s, I felt like I was there. Also makes me realize the part of new love kids of this generation will never know. The waiting on the call. The anticipation of the next time you get to communicate. Life and love before Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, cell phones, to texting. So full of longing...love without immediacy.

A Real Story

Rainbow Rowell perfectly portrays the emotions of teens in love. It will take you back to your first love and the emotions you had then leaving you in a trance of bittersweet memories. I have to admit it made me cry because all the feelings and love and longing came through so clearly, I felt like I was there with them crying too.

LOVE!

Like I said, I absolutely LOVE Eleanor and Park. It's the best book I've read in a while. I couldn't put it down to save my life. It's witty, smart and completely adorable. It's one of my new favorites and probably will be for a long long time 👍👏😄
