Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell I want to read this book more than ever. I am so mad that a couple of small-minded people can create so much trouble for so many. I love what Rainbow has to say about it though:"Eleanor & Park isn’t some dystopian fantasy about a world where teenagers swear and are cruel to each other, and some kids have terrible parents.Teenagers swear and are cruel to each other. Some kids have terrible parents.Some girls have terrible stepdads who shout profanity at them and call them sluts – and some of those girls still manage to rise above it.When these people call Eleanor & Park an obscene story, I feel like they’re saying that rising above your situation isn’t possible.That if you grow up in an ugly situation, your story isn’t even fit for good people’s ears. That ugly things cancel out everything beautiful."
