Friday ReadingFor today’s Friday Reading, I’m sharing a young adult contemporary book about two misfits from the 80s.

eleanorandparkI initially came across this book through Aeicha of Word Spelunking’s review.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell takes place in Nebraska during the mid-80s. Rowell has a strong voice and the prose is often striking. The story itself delicately touches upon the issue of alienation from multiple viewpoints: racial, physical, financial, and emotional.

While multiple subplots are woven throughout the story, the book’s main arc follows the romance between Eleanor and Park. Rowell captures the poignant build-up and heady, intense exhilaration of high school love very well and I found it to be a surprising and thoughtful read.

So, one winner will receive an e-book copy. Of course, this is open to international readers as well. 🙂
