Eleanor and Park is an intense teenage love story about two misfits who slowly open up to each other over the course of a school year. Eleanor is the new girl and is, to the teens on the schoolbus, weird. Park is the only one who even tries to befriend her. Over time they come to learn that they share the same dreams for music, books and, yes, each other. Eleanor is dealing with some serious issues at home with her stepdad, Richie. Her mother is no help even when Richie's behavior is clearly out of line. As Eleanor begins to open up to Park, she realizes she is strong enough to take control of her life. With Park's help she makes a decision that will change the course of many lives, but is the one way to save her own. Set in 1986, this story has just enough period detail to make it realistic, but not so much that it becomes a "nostalgia novel" whose story is overpowered by time and place. Poingnant, funny and wholly believable, Eleanor and Park is sure to live on in the reader's memory long after the last page is turned.
