This one was definatly an interesting read. Very well written, I felt almost as bad as Clay when he heard Hannah's tapes. Her story is unbelievably tragic. In the end when she could't bring anyone to believe she wasn't the person all rumors in school were about, she simply wanted the 13 people to understand how they ruined her life by just saying something or doing (or not doing). With every tape she uncovers some well hidden secrets. The book reminded me a lot of the TV show "Veronica Mars", which I loved btw. I thought the 12th tape was really shocking! I couldn't believe she let something happen which could't take any person more down than anything else..and thats what she wanted to feel, broken beyong repair I guess.
A lot of people don't realize how - by the smallest thing they say or do - they can affect a life of another, this is a good example.
