This is a difficult book to review because of its subject matter and its intended audience. I think I would have an easier time tearing it apart if my it was aimed at adults, but this book is geared toward adolescents. One of my goals with this blog and with reading is to read and write about some adolescent fiction. I teach middle school, and I want to be able to discuss books with my students. I want to be able to make book recommendations. This is not one I’d recommend.
Several years ago, 13 Reasons Why released as a Netflix series. I watched some of it, but I had to stop watching it because it became too difficult to watch. Reading the book was better. I was able to make it through.
