Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell (Two misfits. One extraordinary love. Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds. Smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.)
"I was born twice: first, as a baby girl, on a remarkably smogless Detroit day of January 1960; and then again, as a teenage boy, in an emergency room near Petoskey, Michigan, in August of l974. " A Pulitzer Prize Winner. A Favorite book.
