Mini Review Thirteen Reasons Why by: Jay Asher

Release Date: October 18, 2007
from Razorbill
Goodreads | Amazon

"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."

My Thoughts:

There’s not much I can say about this book that hasn’t already been said, so I’ll keep this short. This is one of those books… one of those books that everyone needs to read because it has such an important message. It’s the kind of book that makes you realize that everything you do has an impact and that you never know what someone else is going through. Some of the things that happened to Hannah may seem like nothing, but to someone who was already drowning it was everything. But then there are other things that happen to Hannah that nobody should have to deal with. This book is heartbreaking because every single sign was there and nobody saw them or did anything to reach out to Hannah. And it makes you wonder how many signs you may be missing because you ignore signs or brush them off. This is the kind of book that when you finish you need some time to decompress from and while it is a heartbreaking read, I also think it’s a necessary read.
