We Called It

This is just to say we told you so.

In fact, we've said it again and again: you must read ELEANOR & PARK! Rainbow Rowell has created a magnificent, heartbreaking, and uplifting novel that both your teens and adult patrons will love. 

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.

He said,

"[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."
