One extraordinary love.
Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.
Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.
Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.
This book is just AMAZING! I fell in love with the story, the characters and just about everything. There were places where I was covered in so many warm, fuzzy, sweet feelings, I had to put down the kindle and just remind myself that this is happening in the book and not to me, so swooning so much will not make this come real. <3
Both Eleanor and Park are amazing. I have read about thin girls falling for perfect guys, thin girls falling for not so perfect guys, not so perfect thin girls falling for not so perfect guys, even brainy thin girls falling for perfect guys, but this is the first time I read about an overweight girl falling for a thin guy.
This book does so much for body issues. I feel every girl should read this book, for understanding that people can like you and want you even if you do not have the magazine perfect body and branded clothes. It is your thoughts and actions that matter, and the one who likes you truly, will accept you 100%, your eccentrics included.
I loved the way the romance flourished, the awkwardness, and the fact that they bonded over books and music, it was just too perfect for words, it was just so adorable! <3
The character development has just been so amazing, how we come to know both Eleanor and Park as they knew each other. I loved Park’s family (especially his mom).
I am sorry that this is more of a gush fest than a review, but I have so fallen in love with the book, it has created a special place in my heart.
I did not want the book to end like that, could we PLEASE have a sequel? PLEASE???? I want to know what happens, do not end like this, I want to know, I want MORE of Eleanor and Park.
