Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
Clues to describe this book: First Love, Misfits, Abuse, 80s
Review: Eleanor and Park kind of reminds me Perks of Being a Wallflower. This is the first book I read from Rainbow Rowell and it definitely won’t be my last. Rainbow takes us on a journey of two misfit teens falling in love and yet knowing it won’t last. If you are looking for a light-hearted fun read with all the feels, this is your go-to book. I like that Rainbow switches the narrative between Eleanor and Park. The book touches upon racism and social class in the 1980s as well. I took off a star because I felt that the ending was a bit abrupt and open ended. Overall, I do recommend reading this book if you are looking to take a break from emotionally tolling book or want a nice satisfying light read.
