Quotes

You think about Hannah and you disappear. So just do it for real this time.
— Skye Miller tells Clay while in the hospital.
That the truth didn't matter. That's just what they do to girls at our school. I mean, I found these just this morning in my math class. They take one photo and it defines you. And then it becomes your job to prove everyone wrong. This is what they did to Hannah and now they are doing it to me.
— Jessica Davis, showing the court the pictures with "A Drunk Slut" written on them.
I'm not worried about you. I know you but I also know how things go. They can turn a victim into a villain. A monster into a martyr.
— Edward Cole to Marcus.
