Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Hey guys, today's book is Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher! The description of this book is:
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box 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. 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.
This book was overall pretty good. I was really interested to hear what Hannah's story was throughout the book. I actually loved the book, except for the ending. The ending made me so angry! But, it's definitely worth reading! Over the course of a day, you'll get to hear all of Hannah's stories and find out the real reason Clay is on her list. It's really a beautiful story. I definitely recommend it to you guys! Just brace yourself for the ending; you might not be satisfied! Hope you guys enjoy :]
