Description

Eleanor is the new girl in town, and she's never felt more alone. All mismatched clothes, mad red hair and chaotic home life, she couldn't stick out more if she tried. Then she takes the seat on the bus next to Park. Quiet, careful and - in Eleanor's eyes - impossibly cool, Park's worked out that flying under the radar is the best way to get by. Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mixed tapes, Eleanor and Park fall in love. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you're 16, and you have nothing and everything to lose. Set over the course of one school year in 1986, Eleanor and Park is funny, sad, shocking and true - an exquisite nostalgia trip for anyone who has never forgotten their first love.

Review quote

Reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love, but what it's like to be young and in love with a book -- John Green, author of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS The pure, fear-laced, yet steadily maturing relationship Eleanor and Park develop is urgent and breathtaking and, of course, heartbreaking, too BOOKLIST starred review This is a tale of first love that blossoms despite everything STAR 'If you haven't come across it before, we very much recommend Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor And Park, which is a gut-punch of a love story that we downloaded and raced through in one train journey.' EMERALD STREET An utterly unputdownable tear-jerker TELEGRAPH & ARGUS
