Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
You don't ever know what goes on in anyone's life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person's life, you're not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can't be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person's life, you're messing with their entire life.
When Clay Jensen receives a shoebox in the mail filled with cassette tapes, he doesn't know what to think. He finds a tape player (who has tape player anymore?) and starts to listen. The voice he hears on the tape is Hannah Baker...who killed herself.
Using the cassettes, Hannah tells the stories--thirteen stories--to explain the reasons why she committed suicide.
If you're listening to these tapes, you're one of the reasons why.
There are only two rules.
Rule #1: You listen.
Rule #2: You pass the tapes on to the next name on the list.
Compelling, powerful, and deeply affecting.
Read the book...and pass it on.
Highly recommended for readers ages 13 and up.
