Thirteen Reasons Why By: Jay Asher

Thirteen Reasons Why is told from both Hannah's and Clays point of view. Clay inserts his views as he listens to the tapes. I really like that the story is told primarily around Clays part in Hannah's life. The book wouldn't have had such an impact if it was told through one of the other peoples perspective. This book almost makes suicide okay if you can document what caused you to do it. I really like the end when Clay goes to talk to Skye, you can see that the tapes had a positive influence on his life.

Thirteen Reasons Why

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 learns the truth about himself-a truth he never wanted to face. 
"Thirteen Reasons Why" is the gripping, addictive international bestseller that has changed lives the world over. It's an unrelenting modern classic.
