``Eleanor & Park` reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love with a girl, but also what it's like to be young and in love with a book.`--John Green, `The New York Times Book Review``Bono met his wife in high school,` Park says. ``So did Jerry Lee Lewis,` Eleanor answers. ``I'm not kidding,` he says. ``You should be,` she says, `we're 16.` ``What about Romeo and Juliet? Shallow, confused, then dead.` `I love you,` `Park says. ``Wherefore art thou, `Eleanor answers. ``I'm not kidding, ` he says. ``You should be.``Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits--smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you'll remember your own first love--and just how hard it pulled you under.
