Josh in Eleanor & Park

Josh

Josh Sheridan is Park's brother, younger by three years. Unlike Park, he takes after their dad, both in looks and personality. He's big and strong—three inches taller than Park already—and he's a serious athlete. Park's dad often compares him to Park, which doesn't always end well: "I taught your brother to drive in two weeks" (16.44), he tells Park at one point, even though Josh is only thirteen. Park doesn't really connect with Josh, but he seems to tolerate him most of the time.
