A new student review of The Tragedy Paper

alikat7 posted a new student review of The Tragedy Paper . See the full review.

“The Tragedy Paper” by Elizabeth Laban was a powerful duel narrative story making you think deeper about the powers of love, friendship, and of course tragedy. The story begins with Duncan who seems utterly bound to listen to Tim’s recordings that are left to him. Which initially doesn’t make sense; a teenage boy wanting to listen to an outcast’s recordings instead of doing more productive things? It later begins to make sense towards the end because Duncan blamed himself for the tragedy and felt he owed Tim to listen to them. Making Tim the outsider in the book an albino was thought provoking in the way he would deal with things and what he wouldn’t do because of it. In conclusion this book pulls at your heart strings and urges you to uncover the truth.
