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.

    "Great sad story but not for kids"

    I would never let my fourteen year old read or listen to this book. They lose their innocence soon enough no need to hurry it along.

    Story
    "Pretty Wrapping, No Bow"

    Absolutely a 5 star read! The storyline of childhood abuse, neglect and bullying is not new, but this one is extremely well written. The characters are developed with great depth which allows readers to connect with them on multiple levels. Although this story is amazing and I truly enjoyed the author's writing style, I admit, I did scream, "What? Are you kidding me?" at the story's ending...you are given the nicely wrapped package but without the bow!!! And I am the reader that wants, no needs, a bow! Happy reading.

    "Best Romance Ever...Narrated Beautifully"

    --Ripped my heart wide open from the first sentence to the last. I was swallowed by this book, the story, Eleanor and Park. Didn't want it to end. The narration was off the charts. Love love loved it.

    "Enjoyable"

    It is enjoyable but the ending is disappointing. Eleanor acts like she is 30 years old, not 17.

    Story
    "Mixed feelings"

    I would have loved this book a lot more if Eleanor's character wasn't so much the generic young adult romance girl. It's lovely that she's so unique but I'm getting really tired of this whole "oh I don't wear makeup cause it's a lie/all I want are books and I love the smiths" persona. I think there were so many things that were interesting about park and Eleanor's characters, but some of their characteristics, particularly the female, as always, are just so comically overused.

    All of that aside, I thought the story of her family was so tragic and beautifully written, and despite my annoyance at some of Eleanor's characteristics I would probably read a sequel if it ever came out.

    "Didn't love the ending. Otherwise great book."

    I was drawn to the story and constantly wanted to read more. Eleanor's life story is heart wrenching and seeing her fall in love with park is fantastic. But the ending was just anticlimactic.
