Dances with Words

13 Reasons…..

Before her suicide, Hannah identifies 13 people who she believes bullied, abused or abandoned her. She tells her “story” on audio tapes that are sent to each of the 13, one person at a time. Listening to the tapes, and telling his side of the story, is Clay. Readers will feel the pain of both teens, as well as Clay’s frustration. The end, for Clay at least, offers hope. Anyone who’s ever been a victim of rumors, ever felt outside the in crowd, or ever been afraid to stand up to others, may see themselves in this book. Hopefully, all readers will gain something positive from author Jay Asher’s book Imageand Hannah’s tragic choice. Find it in the classroom library under Teen Issues.
