This week on Phil's Wishlist:

The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth Laban:

It follows the story of Tim Macbeth, a seventeen-year-old albino and a recent transfer to the prestigious Irving School, where the motto is “Enter here to be and find a friend.” A friend is the last thing Tim expects or wants—he just hopes to get through his senior year unnoticed. Yet, despite his efforts to blend into the background, he finds himself falling for the quintessential “It” girl, Vanessa Sheller, girlfriend of Irving’s most popular boy. To Tim's surprise, Vanessa is into him, too, but she can kiss her social status goodbye if anyone ever finds out. Tim and Vanessa begin a clandestine romance, but looming over them is the Tragedy Paper, Irving’s version of a senior year thesis, assigned by the school’s least forgiving teacher.

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 secrets.

My curiosity for this book rooted from me just browsing in the bookstore. My local B&N had a huge display case for this book and I kind of just passed it by without a second glance. Later, when I got home, I saw someone add it to their goodreads and decided to read the description. Needless to say, I was super pissed I didn't pick it up when I was at the bookstore. This book looks great! I typically hate contemporary, but for some reason this book really interests me! I can not wait to pick it up...eventually.

  1. This sounds like an interesting book. I am usually not a fan of contemporary books too but I like it when a story is told from two different viewpoints so that is a plus. Hope you get it soon!
