Review: Thirteen Reasons Why

Standard

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Hardcover, 288 pages
Published October 18th 2007 by Razorbill

“Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker—his classmate and crush—who committed suicide two weeks earlier.

On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out how he made the list.

Through Hannah and Clay’s dual narratives, debut author Jay Asher weaves an intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation that will deeply affect teen readers.” – Goodreads

This was an emotional book. Easy and hard to read at the same time. It has a lot to do with people’s actions and the consequences to to actions. In this case it resulted in Hannah’s suicide. There were parts where as she was telling the story to Clay I laughed when it was something funny and got sad when it was a bad or sad story.

This book really makes you think about the effects you have on people.

Overall: 5 out of 5
