Thirteen Reasons Why

If someone in your school committed suicide, would you want to know exactly why? Would you want to get inside their head and feel things they way they felt things? Most people are curious individuals and would probably really like to know what could make someone feel so incredibly unwanted, what could make someone dislike their life so much. Enough to end it.

Clay is a normal high school student. He has a good reputation, gets good grades, and no one has anything bad to say about him. So when his classmate and crush, Hannah, commits suicide and he receives the tapes explaining why, he is shocked. He stays up all night and listens to Hannah's story. As he listens he gets angry. Angry that he received the tapes at all, angry that he didn't talk to her more, angry at all the people that made Hannah's life a living hell.

Thirteen people were on the tapes, and they get to listen to them all, and do what they say. Hannah wanted them to know and she will make sure that they all finally listen to what she had to say.

Read all of Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher and find out all the things that changed Hannah's life for the worse.

And if you don't like to read, never fear, you can listen to it!
