Title: The Tragedy Paper
Author: Elizabeth Laban
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Traditions are important at Irving School. Every senior is left a treasure by the person who lived in their room before them, there is the annual donut breakfast, the secret big game, and the tragedy paper for senior English. Duncan’s treasure is a stack of CDs that explain the events of last year’s game where things went terribly wrong. As he listens to the story and puts the pieces together he is determined not to make the same mistakes.
