23. Eleanor & Park

By Rainbow Rowell

This is a YA romance set in 1986 and it's really good. Unfortunately, I can't say a whole lot of what was so good about it without spoilers. I can say: it's not a typical romance story and the author has perfectly captured the fresh and super-intense feelings of being in love for the first time. Remember that? When you could spend hours in your head re-living the tiniest details. Like after the dance when he put his suit jacket over your shoulders so you wouldn't feel cold. Mm. Recommend.
