Clay Jensens first love records her last words.

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. Hannahs voice explains that there are thirteen reasons she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, hell find out why.

Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a first-hand witness to Hannahs pain, and learns the truth about himself-a truth he never wanted to face.

About the Author

Jay Asher got the idea for Thirteen Reasons Why at a museum. While taking an audio tour, he was struck by the eeriness of the voice in his ear-a woman who described exactly what he was looking at, but wasnt there. Jay lives on the central coast of California. Thirteen Reasons Why is his first book. Find out more about him at www.discomermaids.blogspot.com.

I think this book shouldn't be classified as a "teen only read". It's a life lesson and I think everyone that reads it, benefits. Clay is shocked when he receives a box of tapes on his doorstep. There are only two rules to this game, you listen to the tapes and then you pass them on to the next person on the list. He's even more shocked when he realizes that they are from Hannah, the girl that commited suicide last week. You never understand in life just how much what you do or say affects someone else and how they live or die.

This is one of the most refreshing teen novels I have read in ,well...all the time I have been a teen! It's one of those that you can't stop reading once you start, and if you absolutely must, you're thinking about it until you return.
Asher does a wonderful job at writing from both a male and female point of view, and chose a very creative format of storytelling.This is a book about suicide without being depressing, a book that makes you stop and think before you interact with others, because, whether you know it or not, your words and actions may affect them for the rest of their life.
