Review: Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Book Description via Goodreads
Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.

... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.

Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.

Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.

Eleanor and Park  is an adorable story. Rainbow Rowell  didn'tlet me down on her stories. I love Fangirl too.

Elanor and Park  is set on 198o's.  Eleanor is the new girl on school, they just moved on their new house. On the first day of school she gets on the bus and all the seats are occupied or you-can't-sit-here and the only seat available is the one next to Park. Park then approach Eleanor in a grumpy way. Eleanor  then refers Park as a "Stupid Asian Kid".

Park and Eleanor are then seatmates in the bus. Park reads his comics on the bus and he realizes that Eleanor glances on them.  Park then lends his comics and his walkerman to Eleanor. And their slow-building relationships starts.

Park and Eleanor made a deep bond on their love story. Despite of Richie, eleanor's step-father they still make a way to meet. Park is Eleanor's knight in shining armor. Park always protect Eleanor. The scene that Park punch Steve. Park is the man!

Park is on of my fictional boyfriends. He doesn't care what people thinks to Eleanor.
“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.”

When Richie finds out the relationship of Eleanor and Park. Eleanor decided to go to her Uncle. Park helps Eleanor , he drives Eleanor to her uncle. Park kept writing letters to Elanor  but he doesn't received anything.. On one morning Eleanor send Park a postcard.

“He sat up. He smiled. Something heavy and winged took off from his chest.

Eleanor hadn’t written him a letter, it was a postcard.

Just three words long.”

The ending. I have many questions on that part.
What happened to Eleanor Family? Are they okay?
Why Eleanor didn't open the letters that Park sended to her? And Why she only responsed in a post card?
And lastly, this is the question that keeps haunting me. What are the three words on the post card?

Sorry for my many questions.

If you have comments or suggestions, i love to hear them. :)
