Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this stunning debut tells thestory of two star-crossed misfits falling in love for the first time. 5 1/2 x8 1/4.
From the Publisher:

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.

Annotation:
Falling in love at 16 is a powerful elixir of fear, exhilaration, and intense emotion. It's 1986, and two high school misfits reluctantly find themselves drawn together despite the opinions of their friends and family. Park has the joy of being half-Korean in the mostly white city of Omaha, but he copes by listening to New Wave and punk, and obsessively reading comics. Eleanor is new, a tall girl with wild red hair, an odd fashion sense, and a troubled family. Thrown together on the school bus, Eleanor and Park soon start trading soundtracks littered with bands like the Smiths and the Cure, sharing comic books, and slowly discovering love. Masculinity, abuse, and the struggle for identity mix well with first love in this riveting young adult novel.

Praise

"When the situation turns dangerous, Rowell keeps things surprising, and the solution--imperfect but believable--maintains the novel's delicate balance of light and dark." (starred review) 12/10/2012

"Funny, hopeful, foulmouthed, sexy and tear-jerking, this winning romance will captivate teen and adult readers alike." (starred review) 12/15/2012

"...I have never seen anything quite like ELEANOR & PARK, Rainbow Rowell's first novel for young adults is a beautiful, haunting love story...It's set in 1986...There's bullying, sibling rivalry, salvation through music and comics, a monstrous stepparent--and I know, we've seen all this stuff. But you've never seen ELEANOR & PARK. Its observational precision and richness make for very special reading.....ELEANOR & PARK reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love with a girl, but also what it's like to be young and in love with a book." - John Green 03/10/2013
