THAT'S why I couldn't get into it. Spent entire decade of 80s in Latin and Ancient Greek classes, so felt like the description of the historical time period was just wrong. Plus, it was too YA for middle school. Don't see it as an 8th grade novel. Wanted to like it, but even my 17 yr old (who is named Eleanor) didn't vibrate to it. Ruined her with 70s music, I guess.

I loved this story. I think it is amazing that you had such a cool moment with your kids because of Eleanor and Park. Awesome! Great to hear your thoughts. I like the idea of pairing it with Romeo and Juliet. :)
