Waiting on Wednesday–Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  It’s designed for bloggers to spotlight the upcoming releases that they simply can’t wait to read.

This book looks absolutely fantastic.  Plus, I’ve already been reading rave reviews from some very trusted bloggers and friends.  First love?  Misfits?  I’m in!  I hope I can find a copy at NCTE! 🙂

Title & Author: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Release Date: March 5th, 2013

Publisher: St. Martin’s Press

Summary (From Goodreads):

“Bono met his wife in high school,” Park says.
“So did Jerry Lee Lewis,” Eleanor answers.
“I’m not kidding,” he says.
“You should be,” she says, “we’re sixteen.”
“What about Romeo and Juliet?”
“Shallow, confused, then dead.”
”I love you,” Park says.
“Wherefore art thou,” Eleanor answers.
“I’m not kidding,” he says.
“You should be.”

Set over the course of one school year in 1986, ELEANOR AND PARK is the story of two star-crossed misfits – smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love – and just how hard it pulled you under.
