 The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth LaBan is a compelling story of forbidden love, secrets and the lengths people will go to keep both. The Irving School is a prestigious boarding school; their motto is "enter here to be and find a friend." Every year the departing seniors leave a gift in their room - food, clothing, maybe booze - for the senior who inherits their room the next year. Duncan finds a surprising and intriguing gift: a stack of CD's that not only gives him the material he needs to write his tragedy paper (the grueling senior English thesis), but tells the story of Tim MacBeth. Tim transferred to the Irving School the last semester of the previous year. He was 17, an albino and shy. The last thing Tim expected was to find a friend let alone fall in love and perhaps, have that love returned.
If you liked 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher, Looking for Alaska or The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, then this is a must read book!

The third book in The Misadventures of Tallulah Casey comes out in a week! I am sooo excited!!! The first two books made me literally LOL. 

Tallulah Casey is a British teen who signs up for a performing arts camp, with visions of a summer spent being a star and kissing boys. Imagine her surprise when she finds that 1. there's no room for her in the dorms so she has to stay with a batty family who gives her squirrel slippers, 2. there are NO BOYS in her camp, and 3. the boys down the hill seem to be attending some sort of military school. Whilst coping with all of that, Tallulah is also coming to terms with her knobby knees and the fact that the boys caught her kissing a tree. 

In book two, Tallulah lands a major role in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, which would be an honor except she's playing Bottom, the fool who spends most of the play with a donkey's head. 

In the latest installment, she's doing her best to resist falling for the bad boy, while trying to land the lead in a new play.
