Where do I begin?
We find ourselves in 1986 and we meet Park and Eleanor. We see them become friends, and eventually each others first love. We get to know them and their stories.
There is subject matter that was tough to read. Eleanor has a jerk stepdad and deals with being bullied. Towards the end she makes a decision to get herself out of the situation.
Then we have Park and his family life is the complete opposite of Eleanor’s.
Can we take a second and talk about the punk rock that Park listens too? I happen to enjoy some punk rock every now and then. I also loved the fact that next to the comic books, music was what helped to forge a bond. Reminds me of a certain boy who asked me if I liked Elvis and I ended up marrying him. 😉
Also, Eleanor, I forgive you for your comment on Batman.
I would love to see another book with these two. At the end of the book, I was longing for more! I need closure! I wanted more!
I gave it 5 stars!
How you, my fellow readers? How did you like this read?
Till next time!
P.S. Tomorrow we start Wink Poppy Midnight for The Quirky Readers Club! It’s on the sidebar!
