Eleanor and Park: pgs:74-85
In this book so far I have an issue with Park. I do not understand why he just doesn’t tell Cal that he wants to ask Eleanor to homecoming. He clearly likes her a lot by bringing her comic books, tapes for her headset, and kissing her hand. Cal is insisting that Park to invite Kim just so Cal can hook up with her, yeah what a friend. The other thing that I don’t understand completely is why is Eleanor not doing some cute things back to Park. Does she want to lead him on? Or does she just not know how to handle it? They clearly like eachother but are too shy and timid to say/do anything about it. Is Park embarrassed to say he likes Eleanor and scared of being made fun of by the kids in the back of the bus like Tina or is it something more?
