Thirteen Reasons Why

Title: Thirteen Reasons Why
Author: Jay Asher
Page Count: 304
Publish Year: 2007
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars 


Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers thirteen 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.

didn't hate this book but I didn't love it, this book really pissed me of at some point. I mean I did like that Hannah got to tell the people that bullied how they had a part in her decision, but it also pissed me of that she went that route. In my opinion no one has control over your life except you and she let the bullies win. I guess in a way this book teaches teenagers how to recognize signs of someone headed that route. I really don't know what else to say about this book . I know a lot of people really like this book but it just didn't do it for me.
