Are You Reading or Watching 13 Reasons Why?

If so, you and/or your friends may be talking about and thinking about Hannah's struggles and her decision to kill herself.  Suicide is, of course, a serious and tragic topic, but one that is very real for teens.  Because of that, we've put together a little brochure to help you think about and talk about the stuff that Hannah is dealing with and her ultimately sad decision.  Our Teen section librarians are also happy to talk to you about the book anytime.  Stop in, call (303) 651-8891), or email to connect with Claire.  But whatever you do, don't ever give up. If you or someone you care about is considering suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline right now. 1-800-273-TALK(8255).  And remember: Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
