Eleanor and Park -- By: Rainbow Rowell

I just recently finished this book. It was honestly really good. Eleanor and Park are two completely different people. I suppose that is why their love story is really something to be desired. Through all of the ups and downs Park always stayed true to their relationship. Eleanor came from a rough home. Her stepdad was very abusive to both her and her mother. On her first day of school people were giving her a really hard time and Park let her sit with him on the bus. This one action lead to so much more. They had begun to hangout and the more they did the more comfortable Eleanor got around him. Let me just say that Eleanor was a bigger girl with bright red hair. She was someone who would always catch your eye. Park loved that about her. Rainbow Rowell really did a nice job with this book. I would definitely recommend it to any girl who enjoys romance and drama. Although, this book uses some strong language and has a few graphic scenes. Rowell really hit this one on the head. I would give the book a 4 out of 5 star rating.
