Standalone Sunday: Eleanor & Park

It’s been a while since I did a Standalone Sunday! It’s back for this week!

What is Standalone Sunday?

Each Sunday bloggers feature a standalone book (one that is not part of a series) that they loved or would recommend. The standalone can also be one you want to read. There is so much focus on books that are part of a series that standalone books seem to be forgotten. They can be just as great as book series!

My selection for this week is Eleanor & Park.

Published: Feburary 26, 2013
328 pages

Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.

Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.

Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.

Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.


I have not read Eleanor & Park and from the reviews I have seen of it that this is one you either like or don’t.  Have  You read Eleanor & Park? Was it for you or not?
