July 2013 Read of the Month

I just ordered my July 2013 Read of the Month, the young adult novel Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell.  I found the book thanks to Amazon's "Best Books of the Year So Far" search option.  Each summer I read a new Young Adult/Teen novel that I donate and add to the collection of my library at Carlson High School.  That will be the case once again as I have ordered the hardcover print copy to read this month.

July 2013 Read of the Month, Eleanor and Park

The book explores the unique relationship that grows between two strangers during their bus ride.  According to the Amazon review the novel is set in 1986 which will bring me back to my younger days.  The two main characters, Eleanor and Park, both have issues at home that help drive the plot.  The book has some great reviews, so I am looking forward to this read and adding it to the collection at Carlson High School.  It will be nice to read an actual physical book this month and not an eBook.  Be sure to keep your eyes open for my review later this month.
