Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Teens, 2014

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.

    "Refreshing Characters that I miss already."

    I didn't know what to expect, but I'm glad I took a chance on this book. The end left me wanting more. I can't believe how many pages are in this book that I actually enjoyed. It was very relatable and took me back to my childhood. Life is tough and love is wonderful. I really enjoyed the narration and hope the author has more writings read by them. Thank you so much!

    Story
    "Wasn't really ready to listen with our teenage daughters with lots of fwords"

    I am no prude but wasn't prepared for the fbomb to drop every so often and while it was used correctly it still was grating on our ears.

    Story
    "A good first audiobook
    "

    I love mysteries so I tried listening to Dark Places as my first audiobook experience, for some reason I always doze off so I decided to try something youngish theme. This one really got me giggling and smiling with some "awwe" moments. I was born on the 80's but Im still at lost with some lines. I like how it ended but how I wished there was more to their story.

    "I had to keep listening."

    Such a touching story of young love. Though other reviewers questioned the ending, I felt the final words of the book were perfect. In my imagination, all will be ok.

    Its a fascinating tale that would begin on may 5th, 1989 in Mease Dunedin hospital and from there the legacy grew. I am adult now.

    Story
    "Not a stupid high school love sorry"

    Reality is always brutal and true beauty isn't on the outside. Well written from start to finish. A true work of 80s Memorabilia. Eleanor and Park is far from a love story. in fact there too awkward to be Romeo and Juliet there were the most unique characters to pass up.

    "I LOVED this audio book"

    Soo good. The two narrators were pitch perfect and the story was so specific and poignant. The characters beautifully written. It builds so gently and slowly, I was completely wrapped up in it from beginning to end.

    Story
    "For a younger crowd"

    I was told to read this book due to my friend loving it. She is a few years younger than me, so she connected to the book. While I couldn't. I found it a good story but once your over 25 I would say that this may not be for you.
