Eleanor & Park

By: Rainbow Rowell

This book is about two star-crossed misfits. One red-head, Eleanor, who can barely afford a toothbrush and toothpaste, has an abusive stepfather and an unstable family and no friends at school. One Korean boy, popular at school, good grades, supporting family and just complete opposite of Eleanor. One day on the school bus, where it all began, Eleanor sits in “an owned seat”. The “owner” of the seat start to harass Eleanor, and Park steps in to help by offering to share a seat with him before things get bad, then things start to change very slowly, they start to read together, and listen to music on Park’s Walkman.

They know that they won’t ever work out but it’s worth trying, no matter how far they pull each other down.

This book was really good cause I loved how Eleanor and Park ended up together, like at first they didn’t talk and didn’t really like each other. I also loved how that they are completely different from each other, Eleanor is a really socially-awkward person and was harassed by a group of girls and has a poor family and then Park was really popular and girls are always chasing after him and flirting and Park also has a really stable and supporting family and they still ended up being together, no matter how different they were from each other. I love how they didn’t talk but then they started reading books together and sat by eachother everyday on the bus and then just left with no words spoken or said. I recommend this book because it was a romantic and never read any of these kinds of books so I just thought I should try something new. This book kind of made me interested in other books other than books like “The Maze Runner” or “The Hunger Games” and stuff like that.

I give this book a 10/10! 🙂
