Thirteen Reasons Why April 26, 2011

Filed under: Life's Musings — Angie S. @ 11:57 am

Clay Jensen returns home 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 explains that there are thirteen reasons 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 a guide.  He becomes a first-hand witness to Hannah’s pain, and learns the truth about himself-a truth he never wanted to face.


Wow!  I loved this book!  I think this should be required reading for young teens today.  So many kids don’t understand the impact the things they say and do can have on somebody else’s life.  For my full review you know where to go- By Book or By Crook.
