Author: Elizabeth LaBan
Published: January 8/13 by Knopf Books For Young Readers
Format: hard cover
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Jumping between viewpoints of the love-struck Tim and Duncan, a current senior about to uncover the truth of Tim and Vanessa, The Tragedy Paper is a compelling tale of forbidden love and the lengths people will go to keep their love.
I personally would have enjoyed more characters development in this novel. LaBan gets off to a good start, but once we know the basics about the characters we find out little else. This is the type of story that needs well developed 3D characters to carry it forwards. Without that, the sense of tragedy becomes somewhat light.
As a whole, this novel was enjoyable but I just couldn`t quite connect with the characters.
