"Thirteen Reasons Why" by Jay Asher

Rating: Excellent! (5)

Thirteen Reasons Why  by  Jay Asher

Before the story starts, Hannah Baker committed suicide. After the news of her death has spread, a fellow student from the same high school, Clay Jensen, receives a box of tapes. Curious, he listens to the tapes, and learns that the tapes were created by Hannah--just before she committed suicide. On the tapes, Hannah names and describes thirteen people. Thirteen people who contributed to her decision to kill herself. And Clay, for some unknown reason, is among them.
Afterwards, Clay spends a night walking around town, visiting sites Hannah mentions, learning about his classmates, and of course learning about Hannah herself.
