Eleanor & Park – Rainbow Rowell

15745753

I’ve heard great things about this book for a long time, but regardless of what everyone was saying, I was still hesitant to pick it up. It seemed like it was a romantic fiction for young adults and to be honest, it is. But it’s so much more than that.

It is such a beautiful story that brought me back to my high school days and what new love felt like. Love that consumes you and you can’t sleep, eat or think straight because you are about to burst if you don’t spend every waking second with your new love. Learning new things about them and discovering things about yourself, by just being near them.

This story isn’t just about love. It is about being different at a new school. Being from an abusive home. Being bullied at school and how one girl had to let her guard down to let someone new in.

This story was incredible and I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend reading it, if you haven’t already.
