It tackles the aftermath of teen suicide from the critically acclaimed young adult author Jay Asher - perfect for fans of John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars". You can't stop the future. You can't rewind the past. The only way to learn the secret ...is to press play. Clay Jensen returns home to find a strange package with his name on it. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker - his classmate and first love - who committed suicide. Hannah's voice explains there are thirteen reasons why she killed herself and Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why. All through the night, Clay keeps listening - and what he discovers changes his life ...Forever. Bestselling US author Jay Asher had the idea for his debut young adult novel "Thirteen Reasons Why" at a museum. Whilst taking an audio tour, he was struck by the eeriness of the voice in his ear - a woman who described everything he was looking at but wasn't there.Read Less

At least 5 of my friends suggested this book for me. So, I picked it up. Let me just say, I was not disappointed a bit. I stayed up late at night reading it and was intrigued by how thought out the characters were. The plot moves quite quickly just to warn you but you grow to love the characters, especially Clay (The main protagonist) as he adventures around town, listening to the last words of his first love, Hannah. I'm not gonna lie, I cried. There was a mixture of laugh, tears and just heart warming words and sympathy. This is a book I would definitely recommend.

My grandson did not seem to be interested and I did not read the book myself.
