Eleanor And Park

Do you ever wonder how many people notice you? But you do not notice them because your too busy noticing someone else who will never notice you?


The book Eleanor and Park is about two teenagers. Eleanor and Park. It is about dysfunctional families and unmet expectations, but most importantly it is about their first love. "Eleanor was right: She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn't supposed to look nice; It was supposed to make you feel something" (Rowell 165). Eleanor has a very unique style and is just a very unique person in general. It takes a certain person to handle all of her, and Park just so happens to be that one.  Eleanor and Park have a unique love story. This book is truly about two misfits. And one love.


Eleanor is different from most girls. Which makes her more insecure. She did not believe that anyone would ever be able to love her or see beauty in her. Even if she saw it in them, until park came along. The theme of this story would be that there is someone out there who will love you, no matter what you think of yourself. "You can be Han Solo," he said, kissing her throat. "And I'll be Boba Fett. I'll cross the sky for you.”


I loved this book. I love books about teen love so this is definitely one of my favorites. It talks about all of Eleanor and Parks trials and tribulations that they had to go through and how much you can be adored by someone. I recommend this book to anyone who has similar taste as mine in books about teen love.
