by Rainbow Rowell
The novel, Eleanor and Park, tells the love story of two outsiders during the 1980's who find solace and comfort in each other's differences. Eleanor and Park is a story of family, emotional turmoil and first loves and how fleeting they truly are.
The novel, as a whole, was exceptional. The writing style is beautiful yet witty; there are no boring scenes within this book. The characters are well-developed and for the most part, quite realistic. The ending leaves a bit to be desired, but the journey easily makes up for it.
Yes, I would highly recommend this book! It was a fun and easy read. If you like coming of age stories with a slight 80's twist, you will definitely enjoy this novel!
