Eleanor & Park

Eleanor & Park

Rowell, Rainbow, author

Eleanor is the new girl in town, and with her chaotic family life, her mismatched clothes and unruly red hair, she couldn't stick out more if she tried. Park is the boy at the back of the bus. Black T-shirts, headphones, head in a book - he thinks he's made himself invisible. But not to Eleanor. Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall for each other. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you're young, and you feel as if you have nothing and everything to lose

Reviews

Reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love, but what it's like to be young and in love with a book||The pure, fear-laced, yet steadily maturing relationship Eleanor and Park develop is urgent and breathtaking and, of course, heartbreaking, too
BOOKLIST starred review||Reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love, but what it's like to be young and in love with a book
John Green, author of The Fault in our Stars||'If you haven't come across it before, we very much recommend Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor And Park, which is a gut-punch of a love story that we downloaded and raced through in one train journey.'
EMERALD STREET||A breathless, achingly good read about love and outsiders
Stephanie Perkins, author of Anna and the French Kiss||Eleanor and Park is completely beautiful. Set in 1986 and full of retro pop culture references, it's a book I want to share with everyone. . . I don't think a single person could read this book and not have their heart melted.
ONCE UPON A BOOKCASE||Deliriously beautiful . . . My only problem with this book was that I finished it. And I knew I wanted to keep it in my life, always
Jenny Bird for Forever Young Adult||This sexy, smart, tender romance thrums with punk rock and true love
Gayle Forman, bestselling author of If I Stay||Rowell keeps things surprising, and the solution - imperfect but believable - maintains the novel's delicate balance of light and dark
Publishers Weekly, starred review||The pure, fear-laced, yet steadily maturing relationship Eleanor and Park develop is urgent and breathtaking and, of course, heartbreaking, too
Booklist, starred review||Good luck putting down Eleanor & Park . . . You'll melt at all the tiny moments that add up to a killer romance
Seventeen||Funny, hopeful, foulmouthed, sexy and tear-jerking, this winning romance will captivate teen and adult readers alike
Kirkus, starred review||An honest, heart-wrenching portrayal of imperfect but unforgettable love
The Horn Book, starred review
