No amount of words do this book justice. Feb 1, 2009
I wish you could understand how may books i've read and how much i .. i don't want to say loved but i did ... this book. it's amazing.. if i were to buy any book for any amount of money it'd be this one. now i've read and devoured all the twilight books, most sarah dessen books and a TON of others including love stories and socially based novels. i've never been so compelled to lose sleep over a work of literature before in my life until i picked up this book yesterday afternoon. PLEASE read it. that's all i can say through a stupid little review.
I don't want to explain the story line, but i will. A boy named Clay's life is changed. Forever. I'm talking he will never be the same person again. He receives a set of tapes from a girl who committed suicide and as he listens and begins to see the reasons (13 of them) why, his entire life spirals downward. The interesting and extremely clever point of view in the book (one from clay, the other from the voice on the tapes) makes this book completely and absolutely captivating, suspenseful, and absorbing.
That's all i'll say. I want to make you read it. honestly.
