Perfect for readers of 13 Reasons Why, The Tragedy Paperis the story of Tim Macbeth,a 17-year-old albino and a recent transfer to the prestigious Irving School, where the motto is, "Enterhere to be and find a friend."Tim does not expect to find a friend; all he really wants to do is escape his senior year unnoticed. Despite his efforts to blend into the background, he finds himself falling for the quintessential "it"girl, Vanessa Sheller, girlfriend of Irving'smost popular boy. To Tim'ssurprise, Vanessa is into him, too, and she can kiss her social status goodbye if anyone finds out. Tim and Vanessa enter into a clandestine relationship, but looming over them is the Tragedy Paper, Irving'sversion of a senior year thesis, assigned by the school'sleast forgiving teacher.
The story unfolds from two alternating viewpoints: Tim, the tragic, love-struck figure, and Duncan, a current senior, who uncovers the truth behind Tim and
Vanessa'sstory and will consequently produce the greatest Tragedy Paper in Irving'shistory.
