Product Description

Eleanor & Park

Imported from USA

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, March 2013: While Eleanor & Park is technically classified as YA lit and has a cutesy
cover, don’t let the stigma of “books for teens” fool or deter you. It is written about teens, sure, but the themes are
so universal that anyone who survived high school will relate to the lives of the two protagonists. Eleanor is the new
girl in town and her wild red hair and patchwork outfits are not helping her blend in. She ends up sitting next to Park
on the bus, whose tendencies towards comic books don’t jibe with the rest of his family’s love of sports. They sit in
awkward silence every day until Park notices that Eleanor is reading his comics over his shoulder; he begins to slide
them closer to her side of the seat and thus begins their love story. Their relationship grows gradually--making each
other mixed tapes (it is 1986 after all) and discussing X-Men characters--until they both find themselves looking
forward to the bus ride more than any other part of the day. Things aren’t easy: Eleanor is bullied at school and then
goes home to a threatening family situation; Park’s parents do not approve of Eleanor’s awkward ways. Ultimately,
though, this is a book about two people who just really, really like each other and who believe that they can overcome
any obstacle standing in the way of their happiness. It’s a gem of a book. --Caley Anderson
