Eleanor and Park are both high school outsiders in 1986 Omaha. Eleanor is the new girl in town with an unstable and threatening family life. Park is half-Korean in a white-dominated town who struggles to fit in not only at school but with his own family. When the two outlanders sit on the school bus together, they find an acceptance in each other and create a bond that cannot be broken. Even though the book is classified as young adult fiction, adults will also find the plot intriguing. "Eleanor and Park" contains mature content such as abuse and bullying, but it also conveys aspects of hope, love and acceptance. Eleanor and Park's relationship shows that any obstacle in the way to true love and happiness can be overcome.
