Denice and Beebi

young love (relationship)
It all started on the bus...
Once Eleanor got on the bus, everyone stopped and stared. No one would move in and let her sit with them.
Park eventually moves in and lets her sit with him. They sit in silence for the rest of the ride.
The story of two teenagers who fall in love
over comic books and mixed tapes on their school bus — but deals with many obstacles within their relationship. Eleanor and Park are smart
enough to know that first love almost never lasts,
but brave and desperate enough to try.
-loving each other for who they are
-doesn't care about what
-taking risks and sacrifices
for each other
- putting all the care and time
that they have
Park: “I don’t like you...I need you.” (109)
Eleanor: “I don’t like you...I think I live for you.” (110-111)
doesn't care about what society thought about HIV/ AIDS, even though her mom had it, she still loved her and took care of her
Overall I really liked the book, I totally recommend it for teenagers especially those who like a good love story... although, in my opinion, the ending could have been better. I normally don't like reading books but I was actually really caught up in this story. It was both heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time!
