Reason # 6 - cassette 3: side B

Name of the person: Marcus Cooley
What did he do to Hannah? Marcus called Hannah and asked her for a date, claiming that she was the # 1 on his list of results of the Valentine sweetheart survey.
Although Hannah did not trust Marcus because he was a friend of Alex Standall's, she agreed to meet him after school that day at a popular diner called Rosie's (p 114, ll 16 ff).
Marcus was 30 minutes late, thereby embarrassing Hannah who was waiting for him all by herself. After he finally arrived, they had a good time together, Hannah enjoyed herself. But then Marcus took advantage of the situation - him and Hannah sitting in a booth, partly hidden from view - and touched Hannah's knee, then moving his hand upward. Although Hannah told him to stop, Marcus didn't. Nobody at Rosie's helped Hannah. Maybe people didn't see what was going on, maybe they didn't want to see. When Marcus touched Hannah's privates she pushed him out of the booth onto the floor. He called her a "tease" and stormed out of Rosie's.
After this incident, Hannah "decided to find out how people at school might react if one of the students never came back" (p 122, ll 19-21). She started giving up.

In my opinion, it's easier to understand Hannah's behavior now. Of course she handled exaggerated. But everything she starts ended up in a mess with disappointment. It was like a circle. She thouhgt Marcus seemed to believe all the rumors about her weren't true. But suddenly he belongs to the people too, who hit on Hannah just because of the rumors. He thought, when Hannah puts her head on his shoulder, it was an invitation for him to touch her. Any attempt finding someone who sees real personality and who is serious about her ended in a failure. When you try your best but you don't succed and generally you're not a strong, self-confident person, it's hard to get over it.
