This was a very, very good teen novel. It deals with the suicide of a female student, Hannah Baker. As the novel opens, we know that Hannah has successfully completed her suicide attempt because, prior to her death, she had made a set of tapes for selected fellow students to hear. We follow along as one student, Clay Jensen, listens to and reacts to those tapes.
I found this book quite readable and even page-turning from the very beginning. I think the subject of teen suicide, rumors, and alienation are very important ones that this novel brings to the forefront. Although I am not a big reader of teen novels, I found a lot to like in this story which highlights ways that teens might unknowingly contribute to the alienation of fellow students. There is a lot to seriously think about while and after reading this novel.

Journal Entry 8
Rockville, Maryland USA on Saturday, August 18, 2018
High school student Hannah Baker commits suicide, then a few weeks later, Clay Jensen receives an anonymous package containing seven cassette tapes. They turn out to be a kind of suicide note from Hannah, in which she explains what events - which people, really - led to her taking her own life. It's a complicated subject, and I have complicated feelings about it. I did not feel like I had enough sympathy for Hannah. Yes, people weren't nice to her, but too much of it felt like the old "then they'll all be sorry!" fantasy coming true. The whole "suicide as revenge" thing just doesn't work as a plot device. Clay's perspective was a bit more realistic as he goes through the stages of grief. Definitely not something I would recommend to anyone entertaining thoughts of suicide.
