Thirteen Reasons Why Review
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.
I liked this book. I am perfectly aware like most books that there were major flaws and it could have been better. However you really were shown from this book the dangers of bullying, and really getting putting people down.
Clay was an interesting guy, I found it interesting to see his reaction and his thoughts from being on Hannah's list. Also the fact that he was there only because she wanted to say sorry and not because of what he did, my emotions man.
The interactions that Clay had on his journey to find out the truth, really made the story for me. You needed to see his reactions and other peoples reactions to really see the pain of the story.
For someone who is dead Hannah was dropping all the shade. She wasn't going to let the things that lend up to her death die with her.
4 out of 5 stars
