My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thank you to NetGalley and Flux Books for providing an advance copy of Tragedy Girl by Christine Hurley Deriso. Anne’s parents have died in a car crash and as she goes to live with her aunt and uncle, she meets new friends. Having a locker next to handsome, kind, considerate Blake seems to be just what Anne needs in her new school. It seems Blake and Anne have pain and grief in common; Blake’s girlfriend, Cara drowned during the summer and it is these shared tragedies that pull them quickly into a relationship. But as Anne grows closer to Blake, with new friends Melanie, Lauren, Garrett, and Jamie- questions and accusations about Cara’s death prompt unease for Anne. What will the future hold for Anne and Blake? Teens will keep turning the pages as this plausible thriller unfolds. This book has all the elements – high school drama, romance, lies, mystery, and death. Recommended.
