More About Tragedy Girl by Christine Hurley Deriso
 
 
 
Overview
Of course Anne would be drawn to Blake. He's good looking, he's friendly, and they both bring sob stories to the table: her parents died in a car wreck, his girlfriend, Cara, drowned. Of course Blake would understand what she's gone through. And of course they can help each other work through the pain. It's like it was meant to be. But just as Anne starts to feel she's finally found something good in all the tragedy, she can't ignore signs that something's off. Her friends rarely let her be alone with Blake. Even those closest to Blake seem uneasy around him. And then there are the rumors about the death of Cara, whose body was never recovered. Rumors that suggest Blake's pain is hiding something darker than Anne can even begin to comprehend . . .

After a car crash takes the lives of her parents, Anne moves to the beach town of Hollis Island with her aunt and uncle for her senior year of high school. As she adjusts to being the new girl in school, Anne meets Blake, a student with a similar history: his girlfriend, Cara, drowned at a bonfire over the summer. What seems like a tie that would naturally bind Anne and Blake ends up leading her into an unsolved mystery. Fellow students repeatedly warn Anne about Blake, and even his brother looks apprehensive around him, but she goes out with him anyway. Just when things seem to be looking up, mysterious letters about Blake's best friend Jamie raise even more questions. Deriso (Thirty Sunsets) creates a tense, fast-moving plot, bolstered by a strong central and supporting cast and believable dialogue. Adeptly building anticipation in her psychological mystery, Deriso keeps readers guessing while eloquently describing grief and the effort it takes to move through it. Ages 12–up. Agent: Sara Crowe, Harvey Klinger. (Apr.)
