LFHS Special Education teacher Mrs. DeBartolo´s favorite book is Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. She says, ¨I recently read this book and just loved it. Eleanor is very quirky and unexpectedly hilarious. There were many times her character made me laugh out loud. She becomes friends with Raymond, an IT guy from work. Raymond’s caring, accepting nature is exactly what Eleanor needs in life, but she does not know that yet. This book was totally refreshing. Reese Witherspoon recently bought the rights to the book, so read it now before the movie is made!¨
¨Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions… But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.¨
