Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Thirteen Reasons Why: written by Jay Asher
Thirteen Reasons Why was truly (in my opinion) an amazing book. If I had to give it an out of 5 star rating, it would probably be... 5 stars! I have read it more than once , just so I could make sure that what I read was really happening. It is very intense and definitely not a book you should read before bed. Not because it is gruesome or disturbing, but because you are left hanging at every corner. It does have its moments though. The eeriness of Hannah Baker’s voice on the recordings churns your stomach into knots. Jay Asher has very descriptive writing that paints a picture in your head. As in the book, it reads, “Inside the shoebox is a rolled-up tube of bubble-wrap. I unroll that and discover seven loose audiotapes. Each tape has a dark blue number painted in the upper right-hand corner, possibly with nail polish.” The words he prestigiously places has you feeling like you are truly the one who she is talking to. And you could really feel how Clay Jensen felt about Hannah. The book, in all, was jaw dropping. Mystery, love, and death. Its a full package. It truly conveys the problem with suicide and how those who have committed suicide, or who are bullied, feel. This book is a peek into a life that is quite honestly very possible. One girl who wanted to speak to those who killed her, and to those who loved her...
