Key Emotion Indicator

Clay Jensen, a shy high school student, returns home from school one day to find that he has received a mysterious package in the mail. The package is revealed to contain thirteen cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, a classmate who recently committed suicide. Before her death, Hannah explains that thirteen people, including Clay, are to blame for her depression. The tapes, which detail how each person drove her closer to suicide, are to be passed between the thirteen people, in the order they are mentioned. Hannah claims that she has given a second set of the tapes to an unnamed classmate, who will leak them to the whole school if the tapes do not reach the thirteenth person.The first person to receive the tapes was Justin, whom Hannah met shortly after she first moved to town. They kissed once, after Hannah developed a crush on him. However, Justin told his friends that they did more than just kiss, which earned Hannah the reputation of being a slut at school.The second person to receive the tapes was Alex, with whom Hannah was once friends. Alex violated their friendship when he published a hot or not list comparing the girls in their class. He awarded Hannah the title of Best Ass, which only reinforced her reputation as a slut. He also awarded his ex-girlfriend Jessica the title of Worst Ass, in revenge for her breaking up with him.The third person to receive the tapes was Jessica, with whom Hannah was once friends. After being compared to Hannah on the hot or not list published by Alex, Jessica slapped Hannah and effectively ended their friendship. The slap left a scar on Hannah's forehead, which acts as a physical manifestation of the pain she feels inside. and so it goes on...Best books for Young Adults YALSA winner in 2008 and California Book Award winner among others.
