Really good but the switching back and forth between chapters was kinda confusing.

This book was amazingly good. Going back and forth between the chapters gave me a new point of view. I have read this book many times and still want to read it.

i did like the book but it got annoying and confusing with the switch back and forth i don't recommend it to people who get confused really fast and it wasn't as good as her other books

It was an ok read, not the best I've read though. I found the characters a bit shallow and stereotypical, and the plot wasn't very interesting. I also got confused a lot when the chapters alternated between summer and senior year. Another thing that bugged me about this book was that it came across as what Hannah did the last night before senior year was ok, and socially acceptable.

This wasn't a bad book, but not necessarily a good one, either. It was kind of boring a shallow, and just seemed kind of pointless. It's also pretty confusing because the chapters alternate between the summer before their senior year, and the first day of their senior year, and it gets hard to remember that. I was expecting much better from this author since I read One Night That Changes Everything and loved it. Sadly, this book is not nearly as good.

“It's definitely broken," my mom says [...]
"Maybe it's unplugged or something," [...]
"Honey, it's broken," my mom says. She sounds like she's trying to break it to me gently. I can't really blame her. The other day she told me there was no more vanilla ice cream, and I burst into tears right in the middle of the kitchen. She obviously knows I'm fragile.
