One of my favorite books. A book that will haunt you and make you think differently than the way you did before. It teaches us that we have no clue what impact we have on other's lives and that we need to be more considerate of others. A definite must read if you liked If I Stay by Gayle Forman or The Fault In Our Stars by John Green.

This is one of my favorite books. Its the kind of story that grips you from the start. Its the kind of book that makes you think about everything and nothing all at once. Your reading one minute and then you start thinking about the things you have done. Did I really do that? Could I have done this? etc.
It becomes more then fiction to you- or at least it did to me- its a book I will always own, one I will have my children read one day. Because its just that kind of eye opening book. I think every teen, male or female, should read this at least once.

Fantastic book. I read it through in a night because I could not put it down. It really makes you stop and think about how your actions affect others, and the power of life or death that words can have.

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...

"Staff Pick" by ,

A fellow teen's suicide is certain to rock a school...but imagine the destruction that follows when the dead girl's classmates discover her tape recordings are being delivered one by one to each person she felt had a hand in her decision. If you're looking for a page-turner, you've found it.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "This uncommonly polished debut opens on a riveting scenario: 13 teenagers in a small town have each been designated to listen, in secret, to a box of audiotapes recorded by their classmate Hannah and mailed on the very day she commits suicide. 'I'm about to tell you the story of my life,' she says. 'More specifically, why my life ended. And if you're listening to these tapes, you're one of the reasons why.' Clay, the narrator, receives the tapes a few weeks after the suicide (each listener must send the box to the next, and Hannah has built in a plan to make sure her posthumous directions are followed), and his initial shock turns to horror as he hears the dead girl implicate his friends and acquaintances in various acts of callousness, cruelty or crime. Asher expertly paces the narrative, splicing Hannah's tale with Clay's mounting anxiety and fear. Just what has he done? Readers won't be able to pull themselves away until that question gets answered — no matter that the premise is contrived and the plot details can be implausible. The author gets all the characters right, from the popular girl who wants to insure her status to the boy who rapes an unconscious girl at a party where the liquor flows too freely, and the veneer of authenticity suffices to hide the story's flaws. Asher knows how to entertain an audience; this book will leave readers eager to see what he does next. Ages 13-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "The episodic structure is nicely suited to reluctant readers, but the breakneck pace and dizzying emotion are the true source of this novel's irresistible readability at all levels."
"Review" by , "It is a fast read and will keep you on the edge of your seat, as you read on to find out more about the circumstances surrounding Hannah's death."
"Review" by , "This provocative tale touches on universal topics of interest, is genuine in its message, and would be a good choice for high school book discussions and booktalks."
"Review" by , "[C]hallenging and interesting."
"Review" by , "[A] compelling reading."
