  10. 10. Another book that relates to TWISTED: <ul><li>Another book I think is similar to the book TWISTED is Thirteen Reason why. This book is similar to Twisted because Hannah in the book does commit suicide then sends types around telling why she did, and who help her make that choice, and who could of help stop her. This is another good book to read because it makes you think about what you could do to stop someone from committing suicide. How this is similar to Twisted is that even though Tyler didn’t commit suicide he was thinking about and he had a friend to talk him out of it, unlike Hannah. </li></ul>
  11. 11. How it relates to TWISTED: <ul><li>In the Book Twisted Tyler thinks about committing Suicide towards the end of the book because he doesn’t think anyone cares about him! He thinks everyone hates me, his family doesn’t love him and his friend thinks he just uses him. </li></ul>
