June's Group Read

May was definitely a flop for posting as well.  The end of the school year and parenting got the best of me.  I did hit some good good books so that was positive, but my life balance not so good.

Since I was a little crazy I never did write a suggestion post for June and since we didn't do one for May I made an executive decision.  Lisa had suggested Eleanor & Park for May and it was the only suggestion and I got that book for my birthday.  So, winner winner, chicken dinner!

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell will be our book.

Description: Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.

Eleanor... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.

Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.

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.

Hope you will join us!
