What people saw as little problems they took a huge role in her decision to commit suicide. Things such as rumors, fake friends, offensive jokes and even the fact of not being heard were important factors towards her decision.
Unlike any other teenager that makes that drastic decision towards their life Hannah decided to leave behind thirteen cassette tapes each containing the reason on why she did it and who was the person who caused it.
