Thirteen Reasons Why, by Jay Asher
Here is my favorite part of the book:
"...You don't know what goes on in anyone's life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person's life, you're not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can't be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person's life, you're messing with their entire life."
I LOVED this book! One of the best I've read in a while.
Before killing herself, Hannah Baker recorded herself explaining the 13 reasons why she was doing what she was doing. If you received the tapes, it is because your name is on one. When Clay Jensen started listening, he thought there must have been some mistake. What could he have possibly done to Hannah?
This book really makes you stop to think. It makes you want to be the best person you can be, because you just never know how one small event might create a "snowball effect" (as Hannah put it), and ruin- or even end- someone's life forever.
This book is recommended for ages 13 and up. If you fall in that category be sure to read it, then tell me what it left you thinking about.
