I loved this book. Everything about it. (Although, I will admit, I liked it a lot more once I realized Eleanor and Park were the same height. For some reason, in my head she was taller than him and as a tall girl that is just something I've never been able to deal with. Personal hang up.) Anyway, I love that this took place in the 80s. I loved Park's parents. I love the way Park and Eleanor were together. They really felt like my friends by the time the story was over. I also liked the way they talked to each other. I just really loved the entire book.
