MS Reading: Romance

Week 8: Romance

Romance: By far, my favourite YA romance ever is Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. Unfortunately, it has received a fair bit of criticism over how it portrays Park, the Korean-American protagonist. As I journey down my own anti-racist path, I wonder if I can still love a book as much as Eleanor and Park, given my heightened understanding of race in today's society?

Activity 1: Create a series of postcards or letters between two characters in the book. 

Activity 2: Create a "FakeBook" page for the main characters. How would you showcase their relationship through social media?
