Eleanor & Park is about a young girl named Eleanor and a young boy named Park (obviously). Eleanor is awkward, has crazy hair, and wears the wrong clothes. Park is fairly popular and cool. At the beginning, Park sits by Eleanor on the bus, but doesn’t talk to her because she’s weird and unpopular. Slowly, over his art and their shared taste in music, they start to bond, and fall in love rather quickly. It’s a book about bullying, abuse, self acceptance, popularity, fitting in, and love. It’s a beautiful book with an ending that will make you so happy/sad that you won’t be able to help crying.
I would recommend this to anyone who has struggled to find themselves and fit in (so everyone). It’s amazing, and I can’t imagine anyone reading it and regretting it.
