You can view the summary for Thirteen Reasons Why here.

Right from the start you know that this book is not going to be a happy book. And guess what? It’s not. But it is hopeful…

Thirteen Reasons Why is told by both Clay {in real life} and Hannah {by way of cassette tape}. She has a story to tell, an explanation, and Clay is part of the chain. This story packs an emotional punch and leaves you breathless. I’m not going to say anything more than this: This book reminds you that everything you do affects people, whether you know it or not. So, be kinder than necessary, pay attention and be aware of your actions.

I know this is a short review but it’s the best I can do without giving it all away. I loved the prose {the way it’s written is really original} and the characters {they were incredibly likeable}. This is a story that will stick with you and maybe even change the way you treat others. Maybe not. But it will definitely make an impact.

I encourage you to read it.

  1. I like that reminder. It seems to be a good theme in some of the YA I’ve read, even younger, such as in WONDER. I had this book from the library without having a chance to read it. Sounds like I’ll have to check it out again. Thanks for the review!
