Eleanor & Park - Christian Science Monitor

Eleanor & Park - Christian Science Monitor | Libraries Provide Vital Services and Deserve Funding | Scoop.it

Of all the young adult novels published in 2013, Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell has emerged as the clear favorite of fans and critics alike. It’s the tale of two 16-year-old misfits falling in love during one school year in 1986. As befits a love story set to punk rock and mixtapes, it’s intense and lyrical.
