“Eleanor doesn't have much going for her. Life with her mom and stepdad is minute-to-minute scary and the kids at her new school have singled her out for torment. Somehow into this reality comes Park, who is just trying to keep his head down and not make waves at home or school. These two misfits fall in love to a 1980s soundtrack. With humor and unflinching candor, Rowell propels readers through a story of first love and the courage it takes to keep going when all the odds are against you.”
— Julie Wilson, The Bookworm, Omaha, NE

Description


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.

About the Author


RAINBOW ROWELL writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults ("Attachments" and "Landline"). Sometimes she writes about teenagers ("Eleanor & Park", "Fangirl "and "Carry On"). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they're screwing up. And people who fall in love.

When she's not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don't really matter in the big scheme of things.

She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.
