Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Thirteen Reasons Why was a really touching book.
Clay Jensen was still reeling from the sudden death of Hannah Baker, a fellow classmate when a box with his name on it shows up on his doorstep. It is from Hannah, and it contains tapes, which contain the 13 reasons why she killed herself.
This book is a very important book for everyone to read. It talked about many reasons that teens commit suicide. This book faced many tough topic.
Clay was a cool character. Hannah was also a cool character. I couldn't understand why she killed herself at first, but as the story progressed I realized. The reasons were deep and scary, but they were things that teenagers really deal with.
I thought that Hannah was very relatable. She fought with things like not fitting in, and getting in with the wrong people. She realized that nobody is there for you forever. She saw high school as it really is, and not how most books portray it.
The tapes were a cool way to portray the story. They were dated and made the story even creepier. There were thirteen tapes, and each one showed a reason why Hannah went downhill.
Clay's reaction to the tapes really added to the story. His reactions were real. Hannah's voice on the tapes also was very spooky, and she seemed really depressed, and sure about her decision.
I just started the T.V. series, and I think it is almost as good as the book.
Overall this was a touching book that teaches important lessons about suicide.
