Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Mystery , Young Adult / March 1, 2017

Every action has a consequence. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher shows how the smallest action can impact someone’s life.

The tapes would have to go to each person on the list, in order, unless they want a second set of tapes to be released, which would expose their stories. Clay Jensen is the next person on the list, but why? He listens to the tapes and he follows the map he was given before Hannah died. As he listens to the stories, he starts to realize that the most insignificant joke started to destroy this girl’s life until she could not handle it anymore. Clay then figures out that all the people on the tapes are not who they seem to be.   Thirteen Reasons Why is one of my favorite books I have read this year. The storyline is not like many other books. It discusses suicide, which is a difficult topic for some, but it also discusses change and closure. Change is shown…
