The Tragic Life by Stephan Metcalfe was a great, hilarious novel that really opened my eyes. Metcalfe crafted a well written, thoughtful novel on teenage angst that any reader could relate to. I loved reading and reviewing it :)
In The Tragic Life, we meet Bill Kinley and I loved reading about his story and the way he described things about life. His life changes when 2 people enter his life: Twom Towney and Gretchen Quinn. Ever since the death of his sister, Dorie. It ultimately fuels his angst towards himself, the world and others. And it was an aspect that teen readers would relate to.
Twom, brings out Bill's dark past and things that's best to leave in the past. But being with Gretchen, he is able to be himself. I really liked the scenes Metcalfe wrote with Bill and Gretchen and all the mayhem they did. Metcalfe gave Bill a voice and it was great reading it.
Ultimately, The Tragic Age is a must read for teens, especially those who can relate to teenage angst. The book was easy to read and I'm glad I pick this one up :)
