“No one knows for certain how much impact they have on the lives of other people.”

This book was wonderful!  It really showed how little actions can really have a huge impact on other people and that you have no control how someone interprets your words or actions once they leave you.  I’m really going to think about how I interact with others after reading this book to try to make sure that my words and actions have the most positive impact possible.

I also appreciated the creative way this book was put together.  Rather than just telling about a girl who commits suicide, the novel is told through the content of audiotapes that describe the thirteen reasons why Hannah was going to commit suicide.  After her death, each individual on her list receives the tapes to listen to prior to passing them on to the next person on the list.  It’s an interesting way to tell a story for sure!
