Hi anyone who's reading! On this post, I am going to do a review on a book I've just bought and finished reading titled 'Eleanor and Park'.
Yes, Park is a (half) Korean; his mom is while his dad is an American. He is described as this cute, fair guy who frequently wears black clothes with simple wording on it. Eleanor is a red hair girl (which remind of Clary, from 'The Mortal Instrument' edition books, lol). Eleanor is also chubby, wears weird clothes that stands out. Her life is described as misreable, her parents are divorced, she currently has a stepdad and everything is not going well. That is until she met Park.
Well I am not going to do a summary on the book, of course. But I wanted to justify why this book is quite different from other teen love story theme books. They met in a bus bcs they go to and from school by the bus. And their journey in getting to know each other starts there.
A lot of things happen in the bus. For example, Park and Eleanor didn't get along at first. Eleanor kept glancing towards whatever Park's reading (his comic books!); and Park noticed so he tried to read slower so Eleanor could read it too.
Their bus journey continues for half the book or maybe more until the setting proceeds to them hanging around at Park's house. Then Eleanor getting to know his parents and such.
The ending; well you have to read it and get frustrated because that is how I felt. Aint going to tell you why I felt that way. But this is one of the books that I really recommend you to read!
