Bookish Thoughts?

Reading this...and it is...

so good that 100 pages slide by before I even think about looking up.


Private school...high school...and it begins with a mystery. This book just pulls the reader in to this world...these students...these teachers...this event...it's rather lovely. It makes you see the subtle cruelty that someone different is put through...hmmm...that's an awkward sentence. Why is it so hard to be kind to someone...to stand up for someone...I love books like this one.

This book is sort of being compared to Thirteen Reasons Why. It is sad but it's the kind of sad that makes this book so good and makes you read and read until the end.

  1. I have been wanting to read The Tragedy Paper since I first saw the cover! It sounds fascinating and I am glad to hear that it flies by. I like the "Enter here to find a friend" message. :)
