The Suburban Strange
|Eleanor & Park
by Rainbow Rowell
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits--smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.
|The Tragedy Paper
by Elizabeth LaBan
Tim Macbeth was a 17-year-old albino transfer student to the prestigious Irving School, whose only goal was to make it through senior year unscathed. Instead he falls for the most popular girl at school Veronia Sheller, who happens to fall for him right back. Unfortunately, Veronica already has a boyfriend and Tim enters into a clandestine relationship with her. Told from the perspective of 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.
What’s a girl to do when her boyfriend cheats with a girl he met online? If you’re 16-year-old Mallory, you swear off all technology and even set out to accomplish a list of goals your grandmother set for her 16-year-old self in 1962, all in pursuit of a “simpler time”. Mallory comes to find out, however, that simple is much more complicated than it appears.
