EXCERPTS FROM "ELEANOR AND PARK" BY RAINBOW ROWELL

Eleanor & Park
 

1.I am not smart about boys.


2. The girl just looked like exactly the sort of person this would happen to.


3.“I don’t think I even breathe when we’re not together. Which means I see you on Monday morning, it’s been like sixty hours since I’ve taken a breath that’s probably why I’m so crabby, and why I snap at you. All I do when we’re apart is think about you, and all I do when we’re together is panic. Because every second feels so important. And because I’m so out of control, I can’t help myself. I’m not even mine anymore. I’m yours, and what if you decide that you don’t want me? How could you want me like I want you?”

This one is the longest, obviously, so sweet, I think, all words are important. Take note this is one of Eleanor’s dialogue over the phone.

4.Tonight was another fluke, a lucky break, a gift…

5.“But we had a plan,” Cal said
“You had a plan,” Park said, “and it was terrible

“Worst friend in the world,” Cal said

6. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.

7. Nothing before you counts. And I can’t even imagine an after.

8. You can be Han Solo. And I’ll be Boba Fett. I’ll cross the sky for you.

9.“Is Dad going to be mad at me?” he asked
“Whose business is this right now?”

“Ours”, he said
“You and me”, she said

10. Eleanor hadn’t written him a letter, it was a postcard. Just three letter words.
