Goodreads’ Book Description:
One extraordinary love.
Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.
Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.
Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.
“I don’t like you, Park,” she said, sounding for a second like she actually meant it. “I…” – her voice nearly disappeared – “think I live for you.”
He closed his eyes and pressed his head back into his pillow.
“I don’t think I even breathe when we’re not together,” she whispered.
If I could date a book, I would be in a relationship with Eleanor & Park.
Like full-on exclusive relationship where I carry Eleanor & Park everywhere I go; the movies, Starbucks, or even a picnic for three. If I could, I would carry Rainbow Rowell’s beautifully written words through this life and onto the next.
Rainbow Rowell is the reason why I read. Her words captured my mind & soul in the first chapters.
Eleanor & Park brought tears to my eyes and love to my heart. This book reminded me how it felt to be sixteen and to be in love. I laughed, I sobbed, I sang the songs Eleanor & Park sang.
Eleanor is a young girl with no one to care about her, but who cares so much about others.
Park is a young boy who cares too much about what people think and doesn’t care enough about himself.
These two kids teach each other the meaning of life and love at a young age. They also teach each other what it means to sacrifice something for the ones you love.
If you enjoy music and want to learn how to not give a crap about what people think, go read Eleanor & Park.
I hope it changes your life the way it changed mine.
