About the Book
“You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything. . . affects everything.”
Okay, so this book deals with the heavy subject of suicide. As someone who has suffered from depression, it is a subject that is important to me. I don't think it should be glorified or made into some fancy thing, but it should be acknowledged and prevented by making mental health less of a taboo topic.
Hannah had been planning her suicide for a while and managed to record a message to a group of 13 people in her life that helped her feel insignificant. By doing this, the book helps show that the way people treat one another does have consequences. Even if you react by refusing to react. I think that was a pretty powerful message.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever interacted in public. I will also be watching the show when it comes on whatever streaming site that it's coming on.
