Review; Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

In search of books suitable for this month's theme in Platypire Diversity Challenge (bi-racial awareness month), I decided to read Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell and today I'll post the review of the book.

Description from Goodreads
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.


My Thoughts On the Book
Personally I found it both charming and heartbreaking at the same time, while also showing that it's okay to be different.
