Thirteen Reasons Why

Thirteen Reasons Why
By: Jay Asher.
This book has 288 pages.
I recommend this book to anyone 14+.
A lot of my friends told me to read this book, but I wasn't so sure if I wanted to.
The book seemed too sad for me by the detail people were telling me.
I wasn't too excited to read it, but I did.
After reading this, I must say, don't judge a book by it's cover!
I absolutely loved reading this book.
At some points it even brought me to tears.
This book made me realize that being negative towards someone, no matter how minimal the negativity is, it will hurt them.
Everyone's actions impact a persons life and future.
Thirteen Reasons Why shows this in a strong way.
I really like the format the author wrote the book in. The cassettes, the memories, and the emotion played a big role in this book.
I give it a 5 out of 5!

Hannah Baker is no longer alive, she committed suicide. 
Clay is an average type of guy. Everything will change for him and the people that received the box in the mail.
When Clay receives the box, he's a bit confused. Who wouldn't be?
Inside the box are 7 cassette tapes with 13 lectures from Hannah Baker. 
Those cassette tapes explain the reasons why Hannah committed suicide.
If a person has received the box, that means that they are one of the reasons she committed suicide .
Hannah was Clay's crush.
He has no desire in listening to the tapes. But at the same time he wants to know what he did.
In a way he has to listen to them, because Hannah made it clear that if you don't listen, and share the box to the next person, she'll make the cassette tapes public. 
The whole plot of the book made me sad, but the emotion conveyed in the book made it even sadder.
 I wish I could write more about this book, but if I did,  I'd spoil it.
You won't regret reading this book!
