Eleanor and Park

Eleanor and Park - Rainbow Rowell This is almost Cory & Topanga love story epic! I would say it is on the same level as Fault in Our Stars good. It is more mature in nature than Fault in Our Stars as this deals with domestic violence, child abuse & parental rejection.

Eleanor & her siblings have had a haphazard life. Struggling to deal with being abandoned by their father & terrorized by their mother's new husband. She finds a rock in the storm; Park. Park isn't looking to be a knight in shining armor or even to be Eleanor's friend. Instead he just wants to be rid of her as quickly as possible.

This novel takes you on the journey of 2 people who are worlds apart as they collide into cataclysmic love story. This was a great read & surprisingly realistic.
