Transcript of Eleanor and Park Project

We choose the song "Human" by Christina Perri for Eleanor's feelings in the beginning, because it gives a good description of feeling lost and not understood. Hope you enjoy!
Feelings of Eleanor in the Beginning
Eleanors Home Life
As mentioned earliler, Eleanor's home life was very difficult, and once her stepfather found out about her dating Park, things got worse. It was like he didnt want Eleanor to have any positive feelings in her life.
How Park felt about Eleanor
in the beginning

Eleanor and Park Project

Explanation
Since a big focus in Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor and Park is music, we thought it would be fitting to match different songs with the various parts of the book. This project will demonstrate the different plots, and also the storyline throughout the text.
From the introduction of the text, Eleanor is very depressed, and is living among a very horrible family at home. In all of this, she is having to start at a brand new school. Everyone knows that with this come new friends, new teachers, and new bullies. Among all of this, she meets a boy named Park, who was not particularly kind to her, but wasn't as rude as all the other people she meets at her new school.
At first, Park didn't think very much of Eleanor. He felt bad for her, and in turn felt needed by her for help. Although in no way did he feel inclined to think of her romantically.
When they started talking
This part of the book has a very cheerful ring to it. Eleanor and Park begin getting to know each other. This is a big part because Eleanor gains an escape from her horrible home life.
We choose the song "Find you" by Zedd, because it describes two people not knowing each other and being able to find one another any way.
When they started dating
Explanation
Since a big focus in Rainbow Rowell's
Eleanor and Park
is music, we thought it would be fitting to assign different songs among the different parts of the book. This project will demonstrate the different plots and also the storyline throughout the text.
This it a huge part of the book because it not only gives Eleanor someone to escape from her unhappy life, but it gives Park a new, different friend to have. This was our personal favorite part of the book!
We choose the song "The Only Reason" by Five Seconds of summer because it describes the feeling of Eleanor and Park not wanting to be away from each other on the weekends and how they just want to be with each other.
We choose the song "Tyrant" by OneRepublic for this part of the book because it describes feeling insecure about yourself and that is a good way of describing Eleanor and her home life.
The End
At the end of the book, there is a happy ending after all the drama. Sadly it doesnt give any information of the future of Eleanor and Parks relationship, the last line does give us a little hope.
The song choosen for this very exciting part of the book is "Boom Clap" by Charli xcx because it is an explanation of love!
We choose the song "I'm a Mess" by Ed Sheeran because it has a good message about not knowing what to do when new situations come about.
Why.....should I read this?
We thought this book was absolutely amazing. If you are a good romance story fan, you would love it too! It shows that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover that maybe a person looks odd or unusual on the outside but you never know, they may be the one you end up falling in love with in the end...
Recognition Reviews
"Eleanor and Park reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love with a girl, but also what it's like to be young and in love with a book."
-John Green, New York Times Book Review
" This sexy, smart romance thrums with punk rock and true love. Readers will swoon over Eleanor and Park."
- Gayle Forman, New York Times bestselling author of "If I Stay" and "Where She Went"
