Ahhhh… and now the reader has to choose between trusting the narrator (Hannah) and the people around her. And normally we’d trust Hannah, of course, since we see inside her head, but… there’s Part 1, and maybe just maybe Hannah’s inner thoughts are not so trustworthy as we might think. So now we’re looking for clues and, perhaps, viewing Hannah with a little suspicion, just like the hospital staff. And yet we sympathize with Hannah and we want her to be vindicated!

Good setup, Annie! Now we can’t know for sure which way the story (or the characters) are going. (But I also find myself wondering why Hannah has stuck with Matt, because he has come across as a jerk so far. Maybe there have been other times when he was just what Hannah needed? Maybe we’ll just stay tuned and find out?)
