Anyone who went to high school (or is there now) will fall in love with the endearing, challenging, full world of red-headed Eleanor and the quiet but fierce Park. Author Rainbow Rowell's scenes are electric—she can pack a large punch of tension in a brief bus ride. There is simplicity in two kids riding the bus to high school, but this book has both humor and complexity. The book is set in the 80’s, but the themes are timeless—plus this allows for the added bonus of characters exchanging mixed-tapes. Recommended by Caitlin.

"Eleanor & Park reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love with a girl, but also what it's like to be young and in love with a book."-John Green, The New York Times Book Review
