Like Piddy's life isn't hard enough, what with her best friend moving away and Piddy having to go to a new school, now some girl she's never even met, Yaqui Delgado, wants to kick Piddy's ass. This book is a really realistic look at how one bully changes another teen's whole life. It made me remember my own bully from middle school, who, for some reason, thought she could make me finish her woodshop project for her.

 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!
