Review: Thirteen Reasons Why

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Publication Date: June 14th 2011 (paperback)
Genre: YA Contemporary
Pages: 288


Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker - his classmate and crush - who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah's voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why. Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah's pain, and learns the truth about himself-a truth he never wanted to face.

Thirteen Reasons Why is the gripping, addictive international bestseller that has changed lives the world over. It's an unrelenting modern classic.

This is a book that'll leave a print in your heart, it'll stick with you to the ends of the earth, and one that'll show you a new light. A book that all should read. One where you can learn. And one that can help people whom are in her very position right now.
Also, I believe this was Hannah's way of finally telling Clay all that pushed her into doing it.

Happy Reading Everybody!
