Convince us to read the book: The book was humorous and heartbreaking. It had a 80's theme to it so there weren't any iPods or later electronics like today. Eleanor and Park had a chance at first and true love and also a chance at a sad break up. The author developed the characters quite well along with the plot.
Memorable or Forgettable: The one quality that made the book memorable for me was how the author made the book different from others. It was very different!
Cover: The cover completely and immediately drew me into the book. It represents the book well.
