Don't give up on what you want. Fight for the people you love.
I loved this book because it was well written, romantic, and interesting. Didn't want to put it down.

You would like this novel if you enjoy books like TFIOS, The Notebook, Looking for Alaska, John Green books, or romance novels
"Have you ever had a boyfriend?" Dani asked.
"No," Eleanor said.
Park wasn't a boyfriend, he was a champion.

(They weren't going to become another stupid high school romance.)
