I loved this book more than The Fault in Our Stars. I don't even have the words to describe how amazing this book is. <3

Probably the best book that I've read this year. I liked it more than The Fault In Our Stars, but they're both written beautifully!

Omaha, Nebraska. 1986. Park is a misfit—he loves comic books and punk music. His mom is Korean, and his dad isn’t.

Then comes Eleanor. . . new kid on the bus. Big red curls and a curvy body to match. And the craziest clothes Park has ever seen.

Neither Eleanor nor Park live charmed lives, but Eleanor’s is really the pits. Park is her savior, her champion. Ah, young love!

I think this novel is a victim of its own hype. It’s a nice romance for young adults. Eleanor and Park are quirking and charming.

But Eleanor’s problems are really dark, and frankly, the writing doesn’t ring true for me. It’s worth the time to read, but it really isn’t all that. Heck, even the eighties references aren’t all that good.

I read this book for Book Club at my school. I absolutely adored it! No words can describe how amazing it was. It made my heart flutter and for once the "love at first sight" plot was realistic. Eleanor and Park had many problems to face at home and at school but they found solace and love in each other. This book was romantic and funny yet sad but powerful. I highly recomend it.
