Thirteen Reasons Why

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

What an unbelievable book. If you haven’t read it, you should. If your thinking about reading it do it now.

I don’t know about you, but I love getting stuff in the mail, especially getting packages. Well so does the main character of this story, Clay. But Clay would rather have not received this package.

Hannah Baker. Clay has had a crush on Hannah forever, but he never had the guts to really tell her. Now he never will. Hannah committed suicide. But before Hannah killed herself she left something behind. Seven cassette tapes. Seven tapes that tell the story of the thirteen people that caused Hannah to feel that she had no where to turn.

Each person has a story within the tapes and it is your responsibility after you listen to the tapes to pass it onto the next person. But what did Clay do? How could he be one of the people responsible for her suicide, he will have to listen to the tapes to find out.

This is one of the most compelling books I’ve ever read. It is right up there with Picoult’s Nineteen Minutes. This is definitely one of those books that makes you look at the way you treat people and how fragile we are as humans. I cried, I laughed, I felt.

Suicide is the third leading cause of death in people ranging in the ages 15-24. If you know someone who has talked about committing suicide, please don’t take it lightly. You might be the one person they are reaching out to.
