Book Review: Eleanor & Park

Leave a comment

Park & Eleanor

Author: Rainbow Rowell

Genre: YA

In a Snapshot: It’s the 1980’s. Park grudgingly allows the eclectic new girl to sit next to him on the bus ride to school, not realizing she will soon become his everything.

Why I picked it up and why I couldn’t put it down: I was reading another librarian’s blog (so sorry, I forgot whose!) and this book was raved about. I enjoyed watching these “misfit” teens fall in love over the shared pages of comic books.

Who will like this? John Greene fans, books that don’t showcase “perfect” and “incredibly beautiful” main characters. Mature readers: some vulgar words (mostly used by antagonists), sexuality, dysfunctional family dynamics, and mild violence.

A Favorite Quote:

She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.
