The Tragedy Paper - Elizabeth LaBan The Tragedy is a thoughtful book that reminded me of A Separate Peace -- or, as Bookshelves of Doom rightly points out -- Ethan Frome. I loved Tim, the main character, but thought the narrative device of having Tim's story told through CDs that were played by yet another character, Duncan, distanced me from the story for no discernable purpose. While this "odd boy falls for beautiful girl" story isn't a new one, it's well-told, with plenty of interesting themes. Read the review on my blog, YA Romantics, and find other great YA reads!
