"Set over the course of one school year in 1986, ELEANOR AND PARK 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."
The best photo to describe this book:
Eleanor and Park were really awkward in their own ways.
Now, both were endearing as well.
Gahd. I have this thing for Korean males, so yeah, I had a little bit of a crush on Park.
Reading this book is what probably felt like drinking tea.
I don't drink tea, but I imagine it as soothing.
I actually felt bad a little bit because I am 22 years old and I still haven't met my first love. DAMN. It didn't matter before, but now I think I just missed something really big.
So, Richie's sole purpose in life was to be a douche bag. Right?
AND ELEANOR's MOM bothers me. Really bothers me. But hey, it's the 80's.
The ending. Now I'm guessing what those three words are:
"I hate you"
"I love you"
"I miss you"
"I'm coming back/home"
I hope it's the last. But please not this:
"Please forget me"
