Day’s YA – ELEANOR & PARK

Hey, YA friends!

Have you ever loved a book so much that you read it again and again and it just keeps getting better? ELEANOR AND PARK is just that book…

ELEANOR & PARK by Rainbow Rowell
9781250012579
Ages 13 to 18

Eleanor & Park weren’t always Eleanor & Park. Their only connection was that they were both high school-aged teenagers that didn’t fit in.

Eleanor is the new girl in a school full of kids who’ve been together since Kindergarten. Tall, red haired, and always in mismatched outfits, Eleanor stands out. Her home life is no picnic either… Park (a half-Korean student in a predominantly white school) spends his time blasting The Smiths and ignoring everybody else around him.

Then one day, Eleanor sits next to Park on the school bus. And during their bus rides, our two favorite misfits slowly fall in friendship—and ultimately in love—while sharing comics and trading mixtapes.

ELEANOR AND PARK is heartwarming and heartbreaking. Eleanor and Park’s transition from seat mates to friends to lovers is seamless and authentic. Rowell truly captures the all-consuming intensity of first love and immediately transports readers back to high school (for better or worse). Kirkus Reviews describes the book best as “funny, hopeful, foulmouthed, sexy, and tear-jerking.” This beautiful novel is all of those things and more, and is perfect for fans of Rowell’s other work, as well as Jandy Nelson and John Green.

Happy reading!
<3 Emily
