The writing in this was amazingly juvenile. Also I didn't give a damn about Hannah.

I loved everything about this book. The rhythm, the story, the main character. It was extremely moving and heartbreaking. Highly recommended. ( )

Clay, a high schooler, receives a strange package with no return address, only to find out that it contains thirteen tapes from a girl he knows at school, Hannah. Hannah had just committed suicide before Clay received the tapes, and her tapes reveal Hannah's reasons for taking her own life by focusing on thirteen different people's actions that led her to her decision. Clay listens and waits to find out how he may have affected his friend's life.

I fell in love with this book instantly! I could no put this book down! This book puts a lot of perspective on the little things that you do that affect those around you. Some things are big, and some things are little, but everything you do has some sort of effect. This is an excellent book for high school students.

this book is about a young girl that killed herself and voice recordings of reasons why she killed herself. They were passed around to different people to listen to all of the tapes and then pass them on.

This hit me on an emotional level really hard because the things that pushed this girl to commit suicide happen to people daily.

I would definitely read this with an older age group that can grasp the concept and emotionally stand the book.

First words
"Sir?" she repeats. "How soon do you want it to get there?"
But if I wanted a reminder, I could’ve made copies of the tapes or saved the map. But I never want to hear those tapes again, though her voice will never leave my head. And the houses, the streets, and the high school will always be there to remind me.
I hope you’re ready, because I’m about to tell you the story of my life. More specifically, why my life ended. And if you’re listening to these tapes, you’re one of the reasons why.
I would have helped her if she’d only let me. I would have helped her because I want her to be alive.
Who am I going to see today? Besides me, eight people at this school have already listened to the tapes. Eight people, today, are waiting to see what the tapes have done to me. And over the next week or so, as the tapes move on, I’ll be doing the same to the rest of them.
''After all, how often do we get a second chance?''
