Hannah Baker- A pretty yet confused teenage girl who is not sure how to deal with all of the problems thrown her way. “I need everything to stop. People, life, rumors.” Page 272


Tony- A nice and trustworthy guy who Hannah gives a few of her most important possession to before killing herself.  “She came over to give me her bike. It was a sign and I missed it.” Page 233


Justin Foley- (First on List) He is an average looking basketball player, who is nice until he gets what he wants then becomes a jerk.  “Basketball. A lot of us played that summer, hoping to make JV as freshman. Justin, only a sophomore, had a spot waiting for him on varsity.” Page 15


Alex Standall- (Second on List) He is a jerk who cares only about what is on the outside and what people look like. He also writes a hot or not list boosting people confidence, and ruining others self esteem. “Every single event documented here may never have happened had you, Alex, not written my name on that list. It’s that simple.” Page 42


Jessica Davis- (Third on List) She is average looking, not ugly but not pretty, and is nice in the beginning then becomes very violent. “That tiny scar you’ve all seen above my eyebrow, that’s the shape of Jessica’s fingernail…which I plucked out myself.” Page 67-68


Tyler Down- (Fourth on List) He is on the yearbook staff and uses the equipment to his advantage to spy on girls and take pictures of them. He is not only a peeping tom, but he also a stalker and a creeper. “I see exactly what I expected- there’s a bunch of camera equipment lying around. You’ve got a quite a collection here, Tyler. A lens for every occasion.” Page 76


Courtney Crimsen- (Fifth on List) She is very popular and pretty although she is fake and causes many problems. “What a pretty- name. And yes, a very pretty girl, as well. Pretty hair. Pretty Smile. Perfect skin.” Page 93


Marcus Cooley- (Sixth on List) He is a mean jerk who is perverted and uses girls for sexual purposes. “That’s why your on this tape, Marcus. You turned around just in case. Just incase I, Hannah Baker – Miss Reputation- was waiting for you.” Page 140


Zach Dempsey- (Seventh on List) He is selfish and does not care about other peoples feelings, which is why he had no problem stealing Hannah’s notes that were supposed to make her happy. “You chose to get back at me in the most childish of ways. You stole my paper bag notes of encouragement.” Page 163


Ryan Shaver- (Eighth on List) He collects papers from the ground and trash and creates a magazine of them all. He steals Hannah’s poem and publishes it for the school to read. “But guess what? My poem? He stole it.” Page 184

Clay Jensen- (Ninth on List) He is the protagonist in the book and we follow him throughout his journey of listening to the tapes. He is an innocent and good looking boy, who happens to have had a crush on Hannah. “How long could I go on hearing nothing but good things about Clay Jensen? Normally when a person has a stellar image, another person’s waiting in the wings to tear them apart. They’re waiting for that one fatal flaw to expose itself. But not with Clay.” Page 199


Jenny Kurtz- She is a popular cheerleader who is nice and innocent, although a small action of hers results in death. “A stop sign feel backward in front of you headlights. It caught under your car and you screamed and slammed on the brakes. In the side mirror, I watched sparks fly onto the road as we slid to a stop.” Page 242


Bryce Walker- He uses girls for sexual pleasure, especially when they are in a state of sadness and low self confidence. “Bryce, you had to see my jaw clench. You had to see me tears. Does that kind of stuff turn you on?” Page 264


Mr. Porter- He is an English teacher and social worker who Hannah went to get help from but he just shrugged it off, leaving the impression that he is not a very supportive or helpful person. “Not get over it, Hannah. But sometimes there’s nothing left to do but move on.” Page 279
