Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

“She read stuff as he could give it to her. And when she handed it back to him the next morning, she always acted as if she were handing him something fragile. Something precious. You wouldn’t even know that she touched the comics except for the smell.”

I can’t remember the last time I wanted a book not to end. Simply because the journey was so amazing. Even though I am happy that now I can return to writing, I am heartbroken about having to say goodbye to Eleanor and Park. Romance as a genre I thought was losing its sheen, I was so disillusioned with every book I had been picking up in the past few years. I am so glad that I have been proved wrong. This is more than young adult fiction. It’s a story that will make you believe in all that’s lovely about love.

Narrated in third person this is the story of a teenage girl who struggles to find herself at home and in school. She meets Park while travelling on the same bus to school. And over music they bond. But, there is something terribly wrong in Eleanor’s life. There is someone closer at home who is trying to break her down and cause her harm. Does she survive? Does she find love?
