Eleanor & Park

Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell A beautiful, brilliant, spare novel about two teen outcasts who experience love (and acceptance) for the first time. It is told in the alternating points of view of the hero (bi-racial Korean-American Park) and the heroine (red-headed Eleanor of Scandavian descent). Although it takes place in the 1986, the language nor the emotions feel dated. The third act had a surprise for me, but I felt it started too abruptly before racing to the ending. This is a book that sucks you in and doesn't let go. ALthough there was an over-arching feeling of doom, I was still committed to finishing this book and I'm glad I did.
