Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell

I am preparing to read the book Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.  This book has been highly recommended by my friends after seeing that I read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.  Generally, I read realistic fiction or historical fiction rather than romance books, but my friends were so in love with this book, I thought it would be acceptable to make an exception.  I am hoping I enjoy this book as much as everyone else, and I can't wait to start!
