I was thinking of writing that I'm heart-broken, but I guess there is so much hope packed with the misery in this book, I should say I'm heart-bruised. And feeling quite nostalgic. Taking out the romantic aspect, I had a couple of very loyal Ellanors in my teenage years and I can only wish now I had been as awesome as Park.
Two comments: Park's parents' reactions was so spot on. I was immediately brought back to some chats I had with my own folks.
And: That teacher in the gym lockers was a bitch.
Bonus: Three words.
