What are the chances you’d ever meet someone like that? he wondered. Someone you could love forever, someone who would forever love you back? And what did you do when that person was born half a world away? The math seemed impossible” – Eleanor & Park, Rainbow Rowell
Initial Thoughts: A few years ago, Eleanor & Park was featured everywhere. Everywhere I turned, people were raving about this book. Unfortunately, my to-read list is so long (over 1500 books long), it took me a few years to finally read Eleanor & Park. Finally, a few years after the hype has died down, I decided to jump into reading this book.
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” – Goodreads
