Eleanor & ParkEleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Elenanor Park by Rainbow Rowell is a novel about two teenagers who feel out of place and alone until they meet each other. Over the course of a school year they come to realize how important they are to each other. Even though they both know that their love probably will not last they desperately hang onto the idea that … It is possible.

This book is devastatingly beautiful. Rowell really knows how to create characters you feel for, those you just want to have happy endings because they deserved it. But they never seem to get the happy ending you hope. Their ending is real, somewhat satisfying to the reader but always the characters come out better in the end. Read this book, but be warned emotional turmoil lies in these pages. Once you start this book you will not want to say goodbye, not even with those last three words.
