Title:  Eleanor & Park

Author:  Rainbow Rowell

Collection:  Teen Books

Set over the course of one school year in 1986, Eleanor & Park 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.

Honest and authentic, Eleanor and Park may well be the book of the year for me.  Granted, I grew up in the 80’s and can relate, but this world is one that transcends a particular decade and becomes an every-teen story and a window into the struggles and triumphs of life.  At times laugh out loud funny and at others heartbreaking and frightening, you will not be able to put it down once you begin to devour the words on the page.
