I read the book 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher when I was in 9th grade. I got the book for Christmas. I remember loving the book. I read it fairly quickly.
The book is about a girl called Hannah Baker who commits suicide. We learn her story through a set of tapes she pre-recorded listing 13 who are responsible for the reason she committed suicide. The tapes are given anonymously to the people responsible, if they don’t pass it to the next person on the tape, the set of tapes will be release to the whole school by someone who was given an extra set by Hannah.
I personally loved this book because even if Clay was in the tapes, I don’t think he was one of the reasons why Hannah took her life. He is there because she wanted to explain to him what happened. She wanted him to know because they liked each other.
This book is very well written. I cried at the end of the book. And I will eventually read it again. Jay Asher does a great job telling Hannah’s story and making you feel how she felt; tired, hopeless, alone…
If you haven’t read this book yet, I highly recommend it. If you have read this book, what did you think? Did you enjoy it? Let me know by commenting on this post. 🙂
Lots of love
