My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have to admit, this book kept me turning the pages. This is the story of Hannah, and we know right from the start that she has recently died. She committed suicide. It is a story told in a very unique way--as if you are listening to audiotapes. Clay,the narrator, knew Hannah, and had been a little in love with her. When he receives a box of cassettes in the mail shortly after her death, he begins a long night of unraveling the events that led Hannah to feel she had no other choice. It is a story of how every encounter we have can have positive or negative consequences. Well written, and a good book for some great class discussions about teenage suicide. There is some mature material here, so I would recommend this for mature 8th graders, and up.
