Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

After reading Attachments, I knew I had to read everything that Rainbow Rowell wrote. I was in the enormous queue at the library for Eleanor & Park. I couldn't wait so I purchased it. I think I'm going to buy all her books since I love them so much. Eleanor & Park is no different. It only deepen my love of Ms Rowell's work.
It's 1986. Eleanor has moved back in with her mom, her siblings, and her mom's skeezy boyfriend. Park is surviving. Park's not invisible but he flies under the radar of the bullies most of the time. But when Park sees Eleanor he risks detection to help her. Slowly Park and Eleanor develop a friendship which builds into something more.
Again, Rowell creates beautiful characters that you just fall in love with. Eleanor & Park was something to savor, enjoy. It's a beautiful story about first loves and believing everything will work out. Highly recommended. Others who shared their thoughts on Eleanor & Park: My Books.
