Tragedy Girl
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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 . . .

My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars

Tragedy Girl

This was an interesting mystery story, but the pace was a little slow.

Anne was an okay character, and she seemed to settle in well at school despite her recent bereavement, Blake was a little odd though, and a little suspicious.

The storyline in this was about the mystery of what had happened to Blake’s recently deceased girlfriend, and the fact that someone believed that her death was not an accident. The pace in this was very slow though, and the book did drag quite badly from the 25% mark until the end.
There was some romance, although again, Blake’s behaviour was a little off.

The ending to this was quite good, and I liked the little twists we got at the end.

6.5 out of 10
