Hanna Lee Marin is one of the four main characters of the book series created by the author Sara Shepard. She is portrayed by Sarah Dewey on the book covers.
Hanna is characterized as an extremely beautiful, but she is very insecure. She developed bulimia and first tried it out when she was visiting her dad, and his new wife and daughter at Annapolis. Hanna used to feel like a hanger-on, someone who wasn't exactly welcome among the popular girls. Hanna also felt overwhelmed by her parents' divorce and used by her friends. But that was before a killer make-over helped propel Hanna and her friend, Mona Vanderwaal, to their rightful place as Rosewood Day's reigning queen bees. With her own Amex, long brown hair (which she dyed dark auburn as part of her transformation into Rosewood's new 'It Girl'), flawless skin, and a to-die-for body - size 2. Hanna seems to have it all. However, Hanna keeps a lot of secrets, and she is very anal about her popularity and appearance.
Hanna is a typical popular mean girl after her transformation. She's bitchy but also has a soft side. During her chubby days she was extremely insecure and sweet.
- Distinctive feature: Size 2 — with size twelve insecurities.
- Known for: Shoplifting, impeccable style, and rising from obscurity to popularity.
- Favorite things: Her dog: Dot and Shopping.
- Biggest regret: Not having 2 parents that were there for her (because her parents got a divorce).
- Worst offense: Her car accident with Madison. Shoplifting. Also taking and wrecking Sean Ackard's father's car.
Hanna wasn't always gorgeous; in her younger years she was exceptionally chubby. She acted as the lackey of Courtney DiLaurentis, then known as "Alison". Her father had left her and her mother for another woman named Isabel Randall, and her daughter, Kate. Once during a visit with "Alison" to visit Hanna's dad in Annapolis, Hanna binged while feeling abandoned by Alison, who had created an "instant pretty-girl bond" with Kate. After a comment from her father about her weight, Hanna retreated to the bathroom, purging (making herself throw up) herself with Kate's toothbrush. Alison had walked in on Hanna purging and preceded to hold the event over Hanna's head every opportunity she got. After Alison's disappearance, Hanna separated herself from the other girls.
In the ninth grade, Hanna tried out for cheerleading, but didn't make it, since the cheerleaders considered her too fat and not pretty enough. Hanna and Mona Vanderwaal, a girl that Hanna and her friends used to make fun of, decided to become skinny and pretty before the next year's cheerleading tryouts. They bonded and became pretty and popular. Hanna took over Alison's spot as Queen Bee after her disappearance. Within that time, Hanna and Mona also became shoplifters. When Hanna is caught by the police after a spree at Tiffany's, she begins to spiral downwards as "A" taunts Hanna about food and prison and her dad. She starts to binge on food again and steals her boyfriend Sean's Dad's car and crashes it. The car incident causes her father to visit. Hanna and her dad begin to bond again, but Hanna is devastated when a weekend she thought was going to be just her and her dad is ruined by Kate and her dads girlfriend. Kate lies to Hanna and destroys her new relationship with her dad. Hanna was also sent to a clinic because of Kate telling her date Hanna's recovery, where Spencer becomes suspicious that her sister is Ali's killer. Spencer and Mona drive to the Police Station, and Hanna then remembers who "A" is - Mona. She goes to the police station and tells Darren Wilden, who rushes to Floating Man's Quarry with her and her old friends. Hanna sees Spencer, who reveals that Mona tried to kill her and in the struggle, fell off the cliff and died.
Hanna later found herself in a relationship with Mike Montgomery, Aria's younger brother, after seeing Kate go after him as of her move to Rosewood. Hanna fought for him out of pure jealousy and won, but later she realizes that she actually liked him. Hanna is always trying to overthrow Kate every chance she gets, until finally embarrassing her in front of most of the school. After this, Hanna's dad forces them to spend time with each other, which to no avail.
She is soon placed in a mental institute (Hanna's dad revieves a letter about Hanna suffering from trauma) called The Preserve at Addison-Stevens, while everyone is told that she is actually visiting her mother at Singapore. here she meets Iris, a girl who oozes beauty and confidence. The two became fast friends after Hanna ditches the first few girls who were nice to her. It is shown that Iris used to know Alison (or "Courtney"). It is also implied that Iris may have betrayed Hanna by telling the press where she really is.
After being released from the institution, Hanna discovers that Ali had a twin named Courtney after a huge announcement by her mom. Courtney tried to be friends and compliments Hanna every chance she gets. Unlike Alison, Courtney made Hanna feel pretty. However, Courtney showed her true colors after inviting the group to a Lake House. There, she reveals that she is actually Ali, and the girl Hanna was friends with as a kid was Courtney pretending to be her.
Ali tried to kill them all in a fire, but became the only one caught in it and is presumed dead from the blaze. After the drama ends, Hanna's mom returned and kicked Hanna's dad out for sending Hanna to a mental institution. She then laid down rules for Hanna, which suggested that she would try to be a better parent.
During spring break in her junior year, Hanna met a girl at a resort in Jamaica with the other four. The girl said her name is Tabitha.
Mike told Hanna that he thought the resort photographer was sketchy, but Hanna's enormous ego refuses to let her believe this, and the two break up a result. However, Mike turned out to be right. The photographer caught a few sleazy shots of Hanna and threatened to release them to the public, which would potentially ruin Hanna's reputation and her dad's campaign, unless she came up with $10,000. Meanwhile, Hanna had been receiving texts from A again, and A claims to know about Tabitha. An also kept up with his/her old tricks, stalking Hanna and tormenting her with her mistakes, which also happened to bring the girls a little closer together.
After Jeremiah, the campaign manager, receives a letter from the photographer hinting to her photos, he threatens her, and an idea forms in her head. She steals $10,000 from her father's campaign's petty cash and drops Jeremiah's stolen money clip, his initials engraved, right in front of the safe. Kate must have told her father that Hanna had been up there during the robbery, because he interrogates her about the night. She tells him that she saw Jeremiah sneak up there (truth), and cries tears to make it more convincing. Her dad apologizes, fires Jeremiah, and starts doing his best to bond with Hanna.
After another threatening encounter with Jeremiah, Hanna receives another note from A, which tells her to turn on the news. Her and the others watch a news segment togther, and what they see brings them to tears. A girl's body had finally washed up on the shores of Jamaica, and her name was Tabitha Clark.
In Stunning Hanna tries to win back Mike who is now dating Colleen, a pretty sophomore who idolized and was ignored by Hanna and Mona back when she was a freshman. Goaded by A, Hanna begins stalking Colleen trying to find out her secret and finally discovers it, a Latvian laxative commercial. She is unable to go through with posting the video but A posts a video of her stalking Colleen, causing everyone to laugh at her. Mike on the other hand, is impressed by the lengths that Hanna went to get him back and breaks up with Colleeen and goes back to Hanna.
Hanna: Nice try, but hell has to freeze over before you get me into that stuff.
Hanna: Well, it’s official. My dad’s running for Senate. This dork on his campaign staff is already asking to meet with me when I get back.
Mike: Can I be your personal Secret Service agent?
