    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.

    Zwei gegen den Rest der Welt... Sie sind zwei völlig verschiedene Außenseiter: Eleanor ist dick, hat wirre rote Locken und trägt weite Herren-T-Shirts. Park ist gutaussehend, zurückhaltend, Halb-Koreaner. Nur notgedrungen macht er im Schulbus für sie den Platz neben sich frei, liest seine Comics oder hört Musik. Eleanor ist froh, nur ignoriert statt gemobbt zu werden. Sie kommt aus einer desolaten Familie, Park aus einer gutbürgerlichen.
