I immediately fell in love with both outcasts, and when you put them together I'm in pure bliss. The cards are stacked against the love of Eleanor and Park, but nothing can keep them away from bonding over X-Men, The Watchman, and The Smiths. This is a great YA book with adult appeal. Dealing with everything from bullying, social norms, family status quo and cultural differences, this book has it all. There is a lesson to be learned for each generation. The voice actors are great and really help with the mental images of the characters. Recommend for sure - anyone who enjoys young love, Star Wars references and the mean world of high school and life.
