Thirteen Reasons Why
By Jay Asher
Publisher: Razorbill (Oct 23 2007)

REVIEW BY ELLEN DOBBS

Hannah Baker is dead. She took her life by swallowing pills, but before that she recorded thirteen tapes. On each tape there is a story. Clay Jensen comes home one day to a package on his doorstep. Within the package are the tapes with the voice of a dead girl explaining her reasons for choosing death. Thirteen people will receive the package, and Clay is not the first, or last, on the list. As he listens to the tapes he learns Hannah’s story, he hears her side of things for the first time. Clay’s life changes forever as he listens to Hannah’s thirteen reasons why.

Jay Asher created a book that is beautifully written and has a big impact on your perception of people. He wrote the book in such a way that you can understand what the characters are going through. The idea of using Hannah’s tapes to explain her story in ingenious. You also have Clay’s take on the story as he compares rumours that he’s heard of Hannah and what really happened to her.

This is an amazing book, I recommend it to people who like fiction that’s based more on real-life.
