'Eleanor & Park' by Rainbow Rowell
Published on Thursday, May 23, 2013
Everyone on the bus has their chosen seat, including Park Sheridan, a Half-Korean punk rock aficionado with a penchant for wearing black. Park keeps to himself, cranks up the volume on his Walkman and tries to stay invisible, lest the bullies at the back of the bus pick him as their next victim. But the new girl, big, awkward, red-headed train wreck Eleanor, a lightning rod for bullying, appears and Park reluctantly and offensively offers up the unoccupied seat next to him. An unlikely friendship begins, gradually followed by a heart-breaking romance.
