Reinventing Hannah is the debut novel written by Jack Ori and it is a very emotional and heart touching story.
The story is about a teenager and how her life changed after one party and what happens after being raped at the first party she ever went to.
The author Jack Ori has written this book in a very creative and lucid language that kept my interest in reading the book from the very start. All the characters are described in details and their personalities are perfectly elaborated. This book can be a bit sensitive for some and it is also the book that will help you emotionally.
I liked the way author Jack Ori has written at the start of the story the emergency numbers for the USA resident which is personally a very nice thing to do and clever work. Also at the end of the book, there are few chapters that will help you and if you are a survivor this book is very helpful.
The highlight of the book is the storyline that is very well expressed with emotions and has a realistic touch that will make you imagine what author Jack Ori has written. A very well written book and very thoughtful.
Overall an impressive and must-read book. I would recommend others to read as well for awareness. So click here and read now the story of Hannah in the book Reinventing Hannah by Jack Ori.
