Th1rteen R3asons Why by Jay Asher

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.

Incredible. It was so unique and creative and just wonderful. I absolutely loved this book. I like that it was like reading from two differnt peoples perspectives at once. Clay Jensen was the perfect person to view in their perspective. Hannah Baker was so different. When I closed the book and set it down I couldn't help but to get teary eyed. I didn't want it to end. I wanted to know what Clay would react to Bryce and what he would say to the others and I wanted to know if Skye was really suicidal as I was getting from the end of the book and if Clay really did help her or if it was to late. This book will having me looking at my school mates for warnings it will have me aware of suicidals in the future. I really loved this book and highly recommed it to other teens.

Read On!
