Transcript of 13 Reasons Why

Hannah Baker
We listen to Hannah's last words on cassette tapes. The tapes were made the night before she commits suicide. Once we have heard the tapes, we feel sorry for her. We never know who Hannah truly was before the rumors started. She told us how she felt & what had happened to her. She threatened to release the tapes if the 13 tapes did not get passed along.

Bryce Walker #12
Bryce Walker is on this list for 2 reasons. He raped Jessica at the party. On another night, Hannah was walking down the sidewalk. She runs into Bryce and Courtney having an after party. They take their clothes off leaving only under garments on, and they get into a hot tub. Bryce then put his hand on Hannah's leg. He touches her sexually, but this time she just lets him. She turns her ahead away, crying. She states in the book, "His new rumor may now be true."

Alex Standall #2
Alex made a best butt/worst butt list. Hannah got put on the hot list and her friend Jessica was put on the not list.

Hannah was at a gas station when a boy harassed her by grabbing her butt.
Hannah felt as if the list made guys view her as an object.
It was like an excuse to mess with her that way.

Jessica Davis
Jessica Davis #3
Jessica and Hannah became friends through their counselor. Jessica and Hannah met Alex at a coffee shop. Jessica had a crush on Alex, but once Alex made the hot/not list, Jessica accused Hannah of stealing him away from her. Jessica then slapped Hannah leaving a scratch over her eye.

Hannah says that Jessica's scratch is more than a scratch: "It's a punch in the stomach and a slap in the face. It's a knife in my back because you'd rather believe some made-up rumor than what you knew to be true".
Courtney Crimson #5
At school, Courtney is looked upon as the nice girl. Hannah believes different.
Courtney betrays Hannah by telling everyone she has sex toys in her dresser
. Again, it's another rumor. When people are around, Hannah is "Miss Perfect". When no one is looking, she is selfish and conceded.

He reaches out to a girl named Skyee at the end of the novel. Death teaches life is much more fragile & complicated.
Guilt & Blame-
Hannah wants the readers to feel sympathy for what her classmates have put her through. She makes other people feel guilty as well as her self
She wants people to know what they have done wrong, so they will treat others better in the future.

She is a target for rumors.
One way or another we have either spread, started, or have been a victim of a rumor.

Mr. Porter
Cassette 7 Side: A
Mr. Porter is a guidance counselor at Hannah's school. Hannah gives life one more chance. She pretty much tells Mr. Porter about wanting to commit suicide. He fails to get her professional help. Hannah runs out of the room, and he didn't try to stop her. She wanted help, but no one would listen.
I believe the book is mainly targeting high school students. The book really teaches you how much of an impact you have on others. It also shows for adults too. Mr. Porter could have stopped her suicide. Adults need to understand that it is a concept young people can think about.
