Genre: YA contemporary, romance
Book Summary: Eleanor: She doesn’t fit in but she finds her seat in a school bus full of strangers next to Park. Park: He’s not exactly like the other kids either. But when they’re together, they’re absolutely awkward, adorable, and dorky… Awkdorkable. It’s a story of growing friendships and just being sixteen.
“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”
What was great or meh about the book?
I’m going to start off again by saying that this book is really genuine. And I really can’t believe that I’ve never read this book before. Now normally I’m not a super romance Fangirl but this book was different because it made you feel a lot more and you grow Attatchments to the characters; Rainbow Rowell just makes it hard for you to Carry On. (OK fine, upon request I’ll stop the book title puns… S: Yes Faith, thanks)
This book feels really genuine. We’ve established that. From the emotions to the music that goes with it, it’s like a peephole into the awkdorable lives of the two misfits Eleanor and Park. (S: Isn’t it Adorkable? F: Well I guess it can be “awkdorkable”… awkward, adorable, and dorky. That’s basically all of it right there.)
