I was not able to get very far while reading unfortunately. I am a bit disappointed because I heard a lot of positive remarks about this book. I may try to pick it up again later on and attempt to finish it.

I received this book through Goodreads First Reads. ( )

Cute, good young adult novel. I would have probably thought it was the height of literature when I was 16. The characters and the slow hesitation, joy and anxiety of first love is depicted beautifully and emphatetically. A bit too much romancy stuff for my taste, but that's just because I am not 16 any more. ( )

I have never seen anything quite like “Eleanor & Park.” Rainbow Rowell’s first novel for young adults is a beautiful, haunting love story — but I have seen those. It’s set in 1986, and God knows I’ve seen that. There’s bullying, sibling rivalry, salvation through music and comics, a monstrous stepparent — and I know, we’ve seen all this stuff. But you’ve never seen “Eleanor & Park.” Its observational precision and richness make for very special reading.

Epigraph
Dedication
For Forest, Jade, Haven, and Jerry -
and everyone else in the back of the truck
First words
He'd stopped trying to bring her back.
Quotations
He loved how much they loved each other. It was the thing he thought about when he woke up scared in the middle of the night. Not that they loved him -- they were his parents, they had to love him. That they loved each other. They didn't have to do that.
