Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, 2013

Reviewed by Jasmine S.

reviewer rating:  5 stars

Young Adult Fiction, 328 pages


Eleanor and Park is a heartwarming masterpiece that I would recommend to any young adult that enjoys a gratifying story of a love between two young high-school students that may seem unconventional but compatible in their attempt to live in a place where abuse, racism, bullying and body image are all challenges that they face in their daily lives. With a riveting twist and story-line, I would suggest this book to anyone. Along with a unanticipated ending, this book left an impact on me and showed me more than just a plain simple love story, but more of a unique and exceptional point of view.
