Review for Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

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.

My 4 Star review

This book has my heart and I feel cheated. I feel like my whole world was just torn upside down.

Like I have invested my heart and soul in these words and these very words have stabbed my soul.

I can't go on and on about this book because you will have to read these words for yourself.

But I will tell you that this book is about a strong amazing young lady and a very brave boy.

The ending hurt me. I will not lie and I cursed alot too. But I know what it was perfect and fitting. I just didn't want it to end but I know it has too.

Ugh...I love Eleanor and Park! Defiantly a must read, for sure!

About the Author:

Rainbow Rowell writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults (ATTACHMENTS and LANDLINE). Sometimes she writes about teenagers (ELEANOR & PARK, FANGIRL and CARRY ON). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they're screwing up. And people who fall in love.

When she's not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don't really matter in the big scheme of things.

She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.
