#1 New York Times Best Seller!

"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.

      Eleanor & Park was a great book. One of the best i've read. The characters were relatable but unique, funny, & great. Even though they cursed quite alot i dealt with it. it payed up for its funniness. But overall, if you want a mature & old school book this is the right one.

              If you are looking for a romantic tragedy this is your book! This book isn't you're typical teenage romance. Set in a not-so-good neighborhood, the characters are not cookie cutter perfect making them extremely lovable and relatable for readers. Definitely worth the heartbreak.
