'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

A moving and funny coming-of-age novel about two misfits falling in love and growing up in 1980s America.

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 mix 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 & Park is funny, sad, shocking and true - an exquisite nostalgia trip for anyone who has never forgotten their first love.

  • Cute Read!

    I've had this book sitting on my shelves for 2 years and I didn't realize how silly that was because this book was amazing. I love how the lead female is quirky and not up with the 'trends'. At the start I didn't like how the relationship between Eleanor and Park began to blossom, but as I continued the read, it began to make me smile because it was adorable how they ended up bonding and falling in love.

  • A new YA classic

    Sad at times but wonderful. Eleanor and Park are wonderfully rendered, and the problems they face have few simple answers.
