Assessment

I decided to read this book after I saw a friend post a picture of the cover on Instagram. I am so happy I read the book because it was truly amazing, it has great life lessons like what you say matters. My absolute favorite part of the book was when Clay finds out that he is not one of the reasons for Hannah’s suicide. I really liked this book because it really shows and tell how one thing u do can effect someone’s life forever. I would recommend this book to High schoolers and adults to show these life lesson. I do not recommend this book to anyone in middle or elementary school because it does talk about rape and suicide.
