Happy Friday! It’s a beautiful day and I have a book review.
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
First I loved it. This is a story of two young high school students who are in a way out casts. Eleanor comes from a home that is as dysfunctional as dysfunctional can get. She is new to a school where if you don’t look like the rest you stand out big time. Park is from a what many would consider a typical home, but behind the walls feels as though he is a disappointment to his father. When the two meet sparks do not fly. But soon bonded by a love of comics, music and the need to feel normal the two find each other and love that neither one expected. Dealing with the trials of high school and family Eleanor and Park become the couple you root for and the one you want to be. It is a story that has been told many times but some how feels now and fresh. Rowell has a unique voice and a great sense of what it feels like to live the high school experience. I highly recommend this book and suggest you read this with a friend.
