Eleanor is the new girl in town, and she´s never felt more alone. All mismatched clothes, mad red hair and chaotic home life, she couldn´t stick out more if she tried. Then she takes the seat on the bus next to Park. Quiet, careful and - in Eleanor´s eyes - impossibly cool, Park´s worked out that flying under the radar is the best way to get by. Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall in love. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you´re 16, and you have nothing and everything to lose. Set over the course of one school year in 1986, Eleanor & Park is funny, sad, shocking and true - an exquisite nostalgia trip for anyone who has never forgotten their first love.
