's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: classroom-library, fiction, young-adult

I really enjoyed the characters in Fangirl but got frustrated that it didn't really have a plot. In Eleanor & Park, Rainbow Rowell does her thing writing great characters but with a strong plot on top of it.

I was struck by the similarities with Nicola Yoon's The Sun Is Also a Star, which is my all-time favorite YA novel. Imagine my lack of surprise then when I saw that Yoon had given E&P a 5-star rating on Goodreads. I'm curious to know the extent to which Yoon's novel was influenced by Rowell's.

4.5 stars, rounded up because last year I was stingy and only gave two 5-star reviews
