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.

    "Not so much"

    There were some things I really liked about this book but there were more things I didn't like. I think weak is a good word to summarize the book. I'm glad it wasn't very long.

    "Juliet and Her Romeo"

    In English class Eleanor says Romeo and Juliet is Shakespeare being cynical and sarcastic. Park says the play is beloved because people like to remember how it was to be young and in love. Eleanor & Park made me laugh and cry, and remember.

    "Simple Story, Beautifully Told"

    This book is golden example of "show don't tell." Charming, passionate, and heart-breaking all told in a simple story. It's about the characters, not the plot. Absolutely precious.

    Story
    "Racist book"

    Wasted an audible credit on this. The mother of Park is from Korea, I get it. However, a Chinese accent was used. Also, was that necessary? Also, just the whole emasculating of half-Korean Park. Ugh. Should have been a fanfiction for a niche audience of racists.

    "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!
