Eleanor is the new girl with unruly red hair and wild outfits. Park is the boy at the back of the bus and has his nose always stuck in a comic. Slowly, they grow closer and exchange mixtapes with each other. As they talk, share interests, late night conversations, and comic book sharing, they soon fall in love.
It was such a heartfelt book!! The storytelling and imagery is just stunning. Only a few pages in, I immediately realized that I was invested in the characters and already wanted to draw them. To me, that's a sign of a captivating novel. I love how it's told in different perspectives, because you really get to know the characters intimately.
I'd recommend this book to older teens. There's lots of swearing and some pretty disturbing things written on Eleanor's books. Like, perverted stuff. It does cover some triggering topics, like ab*se. But, if you want a fast paced and romantic novel to read while sheltering in place, then you should definitely read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell!
