Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

eleanor & Park{description from Shelfari}

Eleanor is the new girl in town, and she’s never felt more alone. All mismatched clothes, mad red hair and chaotic home life, she couldn’t stick out more if she tried. Then she takes the seat on the bus next to Park. Quiet, careful and, in Eleanor’s eyes, impossibly cool, Park has worked out that flying under the radar is the best way to get by. Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mixed tapes, Eleanor and Park fall in love. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you’re 16, and you have nothing and everything to lose. Set over the course of one school year in 1986, Eleanor and Park is funny, sad, shocking and true – an exquisite nostalgia trip for anyone who has never forgotten their first love.

{my thoughts}

This was the last book I read in 2013 and it was a great ending book. I love this book. It is so real and heartfelt and moving. I really felt for the characters as they were going through everything that you go through with a first love and everything you shouldn’t have to. This is a great book to remind people to think about what might be going on in someone else’s life before judging them. You pull for the 2 main characters in this book. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.
