Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love—and just how hard it pulled you under.The description is so well written too.This book is so beautiful, heartbreaking and undeniably real. It reminds you the one you consider your first love - not the one you kissed when you were 12, not the one you won't give up your Nintendo over. Haha. A book that reminds you about the very first time you are really into someone, and for some of us - how we never really love another person the same again. I loved everything about it. It's realistic. Everything with her family, and her mum and Park.I wish we knew exactly - every words - on what Park's parents argued that Sunday. I also wish the readers knew the exact three words - just to have it written for us to read.
