Apologies for not posting this Friday! I was out sick, but wanted to get this up before the weekend was over...
This weekend's book is a preview copy of Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. It has been getting a ton of good buzz and even has a blurb from one of my favorite teen authors: "This sexy, smart, tender romance thrums with punk rock and true love. Readers will swoon for Eleanor & Park" - Gayle Forman (If I Stay, One Day)
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.
I've heard lots of people say they love this book, but other people say it is a teen book written for adults. So whoever gets this book...I want to hear back about what you think of it! There are 21 people waiting for this one right now, but you can skip the list if Random Number Generator picks your comment.
