Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Booklist had this book as one of the 10 best Young Adult love stories of 2013, so I decided to put it on hold on MyMediaMall and listen to the story. I absolutely loved it! This story set in 1986 not only rang as true, but had a unique story line - one that I even as an "ex-teenager" wanted to keep listening to. Though appropriate more for the grades 9-12 than 6-8 I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a good love story.
The author, Rainbow Rowell, is really popular right now as lots of people are reading and loving another of her titles,
