In this award-winning novel, Hannah's journey through bullying and grief shows just how long old wounds can take to heal.
Hannah's world is in pieces, and she doesn't need the school counselor to tell her she has deep-seated psychological issues. It's been almost a year since her popular older sister, Katie, died in a car accident. Hannah should feel terrible, but for the first time in ages, the bullies who relentlessly tormented her have backed off - and she feels a glimmer of hope.
With the support of her guidance counselor and an endearing goofball named Josh, Hannah begins to reconcile her past troubles and present grief. But will these attempts at friendship be too much for Hannah's fragility to bear?
