Eleanor and Park
By: Rainbow Rowell
Summary of the Book
Eleanor is a red-headed girl who on her first day of school had to ride the bus and of course everyone already had their normal seats where they always sat and nobody would let her sit down until finally after 5 minutes of her standing there a boy named Park let her sit next to him.
Eleanor did not look like any of the kids at her new school, which made it hard for her to fit in. Eleanor has bright red curly hair and was a little heavier than the rest of the other kids. Eleanor was made fun of all day, and it would continue for awhile and the longer it happened the worse it got. One day some girls in her gym class even urinated on her school clothes, so she had to wear her hideous gym uniform all day.
Throughout the book Park decides that he should be the bigger person as his mother always said and be friends with Eleanor. As their friendship grew they eventually started dating. Now when Eleanor is being picked on Park is there to help protect her and defend her.
