While reading Eleanor & Park from beginning to end, I find myself not liking the book as much as I had hoped. There were some problematic instances of negative stereotyping. Park 's mother, Mindy, is a perfect example of how she is portrayed in such a way some people will find offensive. The family dynamics from both of the main characters ' families are not good at all, if not very dangerous to readers who have already survived from any sort of abuse. My biggest problem here is the romance.

The use of emotional strategies is effective because Millman is able to relate with
Ever since America established itself as an independent country, there has consistently been a need for soldiers to fight in the many wars that the country has found itself involved in. This need has made conscription a very common aspect during wartime in America. The draft was first introduced to the USA during the Civil War, in which both the Confederate and Union Armies forced men to fight in the military.
