Eleanor & Park
A Paperback edition by Rainbow Rowell in English (Feb 1, 2013)
'Reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love, but what it's like to be young and in love with a book' John Green, author of The Fault in our Stars
Eleanor is the new girl in town, and she's never felt more alone. All mismatched clothes, mad red hair and chaotic home life, she couldn't stick out more if she tried.
Then she takes the seat on the bus next to Park. Quiet, careful and - in Eleanor's eyes - impossibly cool, Park's worked out that flying under the radar is the best way to get by.
Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall in love. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you're 16, and you have nothing and everything to lose.
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, Eleanor & Park is funny, sad, shocking and true - an exquisite nostalgia trip for anyone who has never forgotten their first love.

“You can be Han Solo, And I’ll be Boba Fett."
You will drag in the past: in the 80s. How was life without iphones? If you wanted to enjoy music you had to use tapes and walkman. Follow in love on the bus with comicbooks and music along with Eleanor and Park.
Park is the first love of Eleanor, a young chubby girl with read hair — she feels completely uncomfortable in her skin, she has no friends since she just changed school and city and she doesn’t know how someone like Park could ever like her.
You can’t and won’t resist to Park and Eleanor love story. They’re just so freaking ADORABLE. Yeah, adorable is the only word that you can use when you think about Eleanor and Park. They’re THE OTP!
It’s like when you’re a little girl and you force your dolls kissed each other. That’s how I’ve felt reading Eleanor and Park’s story.
Park and Eleanor couldn’t have been more different; Park is an half-asian guy with a veteran father and loves comicbooks, instead Eleanor comes from a not well-respect family where her mother puts her lover’s interests before her kids, infact Eleanor and her brothers are terrified by their stepdad. Eleanor will find the security that she’s searching for in Park and a safe place in his house with his family.
But the FINALE. God, I hate the finale. It’s just HEARTBREAKING.
