Clay Jensen, a high school student returns home from school one day to find a package on his front door. The package contains seven cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate who recently committed suicide. Clay listens to Hannah's voice recording to the event that led up to her death.

This scene opens “Thirteen Reasons Why,” first novel by Jay Asher published in 2007. The purpose of this book is to reach teenagers so they don't make a mistake such as suicide or bullying others.

Summer rowland said, “I like the book. It’s like I'm there, and maybe some people could relate to this book. This would help people prevent suicide. It is based off reality.”

“Thirteen Reasons Why” tells the story of the deceased Hannah Baker, a high school student who committed suicide. She created thirteen tapes that explained the thirteen reasons why she committed suicide. Clay, a teenager that had some feelings for Hannah, but they never really communicated. He had no idea why he got the tape, but he knew his name was in the list, within the tape.

Kert Spatzier said, “It was sad the first time I read it. it was a little emotional as well.”

Harlee Gunter said, “It’s very interesting. I like how it started from the end as the beginning.”

I personally think it’s very good and interesting mainly because it is a mystery type book. It’s probably the only book that I have actually enjoyed reading.

I think that if people really read this book, it could help people out there not want to harm themselves or others in any way shape or form.
