    I finished this book so many months ago and haven’t been able to bring myself to actually sit down and write this review. So often I have heard of people saying that certain books have given them “all the feels” and, honestly, I haven’t experienced that moment… until Eleanor & Park. This book gave me all the feels. Having been bullied myself in school, it’s one of the biggest societal issues that I feel extremely strongly about and books that deal with bullying and overcoming bullying are high on my reading list. More than ever we hear about bullying, with the internet making it so much easier for cyber-bullying to occur. Even though Eleanor & Park takes place in the 80′s, so much of this book still rings true to present day. Until we all learn to respect each other and bullying is eradicated, these types of stories will be relevant and timeless. Eleanor & Park was so heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. There were so many moments where I found myself rooting for the star-crossed duo, but cringing as I wait for the other shoe to drop. Rowell has written such a beautiful love story in the midst of a very ugly world that Park and Eleanor have to live in.

    Love among the misfits

    Absolutely impressive, saccharine-free account of first love. Literary cousin of the old teen tv shows My So-called Life, and Freaks and Geeks. The psychology of the main characters seemed spot on, and the novel subtly exposed the potential damage to adult loving relationships when a child grows up neglected and abused. A must-read.

    Eleanor and Park Review

    BEST BOOK BY FAR. This book was heart wrenchingly beautiful. I loved how the book shows Park and Eleanor falling in love. Two teenagers who didnt expect to fall for each other. This book just shows tht anyone can fall in love. I started reading Eleanor and Park two days ago and i couldnt stop reading. I love that the author didnt end the story with Eleanor writing back Park (FINALLYYYY!). I really do hope Rainbow Rowell decides to make a sequel to this book. AAMAZING STORY. 5 stars :)

    I wish it hadn't ended!

    Wow, what a great book! Really, I give it 4.5 stars. (I found the use of bad language, although probably realistic, distracting.) But other than that, it was really a perfect read. I loved the third-person point of view from two characters' perspectives. I love how the characters' love for each unfolded. I love how I felt about these two imperfect people. Really, what's not to love? Beautifully executed. I can't wait to red the next thing by Rainbow Rowell.

    An Unlikely Love Story

    This is a beautifully & often times brutal depiction of an unlikely love story between two high school oddballs. Funny, clever and heart-breaking, the author proves yet again she is no flash in the pan.
