Eleanor & Park

Rainbow Rowell

Summary

Eleanor is a new student at the same school Park has attended for his whole life. They have assigned seating in their school bus, and everything is messed up when Eleanor is forced to sit next to Park. Each day they talk a bit more and become closer friends. They begin sharing magazines and mixed tapes, and before they know it they are falling in love. Unfortunately, Eleanor has family issues, and she must overcome those problems along with Park's unaccepting mother and bullies at school to call Park her own.

Critique

I thought the book was a little slow at the beginning, and when there is action in the plot, I feel like it could have been more notable. The idea of the book is very good, but I feel like it could have been executed better. Overall I would give it 3 stars.
