Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell was a book that I had placed on hold at the library months ago. And after waiting all of those months, I gobbled this book up in no time.
Eleanor & Park is about two misfit 16-year-olds who have their first high school romance, but it’s not a romantic book. It’s a book about life, trying to find yourself as a teen, and first love.
Did I mention it takes place in 1986 which means it has some awesome 80s references?
Honestly, all I can say about Eleanor & Park is that it’s a book that you have got to get your hands on. It’s emotional, sad, uplifting, and beautiful all at the same time.
And it totally reminds me of The Fault in Our Stars, which I just reviewed last week!
Anyone have a good suggestion for another book on first love?
