This is just to say we told you so.
Still don't trust us?! Fine, but do you trust John Green? I thought so. He wrote a rave recommendation for ELEANOR & PARK in The New York Times.
"[T]he obstacle in ELEANOR & PARK is simply the world. The world cannot stomach a relationship between a good-looking Korean kid and Big Red. The world cannot allow Eleanor a boyfriend of any kind, because she’s poor and fat and dresses funny. The world cannot allow Park a girlfriend because he likes wearing eyeliner, and everyone knows that’s gay. The world is the obstacle, as it always is when you’re 16 and truly in love."
He also said,
"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."
