Brilliant - get a copy of this book and read it.

It deals with the effects on a high school community of the suicide of one of their number. Hannah Baker has killed herself but we, the reader, don't know why. Her reasons are revealed in a series of tapes she leaves to be heard by certain members of her high school community. Each event that lead up to her death is described by Hannah, and a picture of her life is created very effectively.

This is not a gruesome read, nor does it glorify suicide. In fact it is stated a number of times that Hannah had choices. It shows clearly the effect a random comment or act can have on another person, and the repercussions that follow.

Highly recommended.
