#1 New York Times Best Seller! Eleanor & Park
reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love with a girl, but also what it's like to be young and in love with a book.-John Green, The New York Times Book Review Bono met his wife in high school
, Park says.So did Jerry Lee Lewis
, Eleanor answers.I'm not kidding
, he says.You should be
, she says, we're 16
.What about Romeo and Juliet?
Shallow, confused, then dead.I love you
, Park says.Wherefore art thou,
Eleanor answers.I'm not kidding,
he says.You should be.
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this 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.
