REVIEW: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Thirteen Reasons Why

You can’t stop the future.
You can’t rewind the past.
The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play.

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 as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.

"This is the book that I probably would never forget. My emotions are all over the place and I wanted to hate it but I totally loved it.
There's nothing cheery with this book but along the end, a smile will definitely what you will be doing. I could say that it was a statement of hope that we could also do.
There's a high chance that most of us who had read this book that Hannah Baker's problems were too shallow for her to commit suicide but we also must remember that not all of us are strong enough especially when you feel alone and lonely."
