Eleanor & Park

15/50 2015 Reading Challenge: A book set in high school
I wish I had taken a note as to where I had gotten the recommendation for this story. It is in the young adult genre and takes place in a high school that sounds like every other high school with its problems that get overlooked. The characters do not become the high school prom queen and king, however do grow in their relationship and friendships. It made me think of other popular YA books of recent years, The Fault in Our Stars and The Spectacular Now. Following in their footsteps, this film has been picked up for development into a movie. I had a hard time putting it down, but I am not sure I liked how it ended.
