Book Review: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
"You can't stop the future.
You can't change rewind the past
The only way to learn the secret
... is to press pl►y."
"Clay Jensen doesn't want anything to do with the tapes Hannah Baker made. Hannah is dead. Her secrets should be buried with her.
Then Hanah voice tells Clay that his name ison her tapes- and that he is, in some way, responisible for her death.
All through the night, Clay keeps listening. He follows Hannah's recorded words throughout his small town...
and what he discovers changes his life forever."
"Clay Jensen returns home 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's 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 first-hand witness to Hannah's pain, and learns the truth about himself- a truth he never wanted to face."
MY RATING: 10/10♥
I love this book! It shows so many types of different people. Jay Asher really got "us"- the readers, inside Hannah's head. It made me realize there are many reasons why people committ suicide each and everyday. The chaqracters were perfect, all of them, even if some were just terrible. As a person who once or twice thought about suicide this book helped me see the damage it could do to those around me. It, this book,mainly taught me how life is sometimes like a domino effect. Sometimes in good ways and other times in bad ways. In this case it was bad. It taught me how getting involved in a rumour or even passing one on can begin to ruin someones life. You should be careful about what you say and do.
THANK YOU JAY ASHER FOR SHOWING A REAL LIFE SITUATION!
