The Tragedy Paper
This is one of those books that keeps you thinking beyond the last page. It had me hooked right from the beginning as a realistic-fiction, coming-of-age book with the turn-the-page factor of a mystery. I enjoyed the alternating points of view of Duncan and Tim, but it's even more... as both boys are intertwined through both stories, with one taking place the prior year. I love the intrigue of the prior senior class leaving something behind in their dorm room for the new student resident to find. I also love the premise of The Tragedy Paper being an assignment for all seniors.
Elizabeth LaBan did an excellent job keeping the reader guessing as to what happened the year before...and it was tragic. Her writing style is very easy to read. I would venture to say that it will be a great find for the reluctant reader.
Here is the link to Random House and their synopsis.
