    Hannah?s story is a hard one to take in. She lays it out honestly and you feel for her. What I really liked about Hannah?s journey is she admits and realizes what her problems are, and she knows there isn?t some overnight fix but that she has to take it day by day and if she fall...

    I wish this book had made me connect with Hannah more. Obviously she has had a rough life. The book itself is written in snippets, some things are repeated and others should just be left out. She doesn't seem like she has overcome her demons so it is hard to see this helping others, un...

    Hannah is an emotional and powerful autobiography. She has a strong voice, and it took me on quite a journey. There are so many things going against Hannah, and on the other hand, she builds some promising relationships and has wonderful opportunities but her depression and BPD int...

    This is another one of those books that makes you go, "ick". Poor Hannah just wants a mom to love her, and as a mom who loves her kids fiercely, this book was a heart-break. Hannah is so strung out on drugs and mutilating herself that's it's sometimes difficult to follow her story line...

    I had no idea when I put this book on hold that Hannah was so young. Her life story is tough: depression, cutting, pills, broken home; this poor girl suffers more than many do in a few lifetimes. This series is a brilliant idea with a teen speaking on their level, describing how things...

    I have read most of the other books in this series, but I wasn't wowed by this one. There was too much focus on Hannah's relationships, or at least more than I would have liked. However, I could relate to some parts of the book. The reason I gave this book only two stars is because tow...
