Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell (2013)
An unlikely teenage romance between two misfits: Eleanor (the overweight girl with flaming red hair and strange clothes) and Park (the comic-book-loving half-Korean boy).
Eleanor and Park and terribly awkward, endearing characters and their story is sweet and tragic. I liked it, but I wasn’t blown away by it either.
