Book Review: Thirteen Reasons Why


by Kaylee Cisna, Staff Writer


This book is definitely an eye opener to what is really happening to others in their lives around us. Jay Asher has written an amazing book that really makes you think; when Hannah Baker, a regular everyday teen commits suicide and leaves tape recordings of her last thoughts behind, they end up in the hands of a boy who had liked Hannah for as long as he can remember. It takes you on a long journey through Hannah’s life and how all of the decisions that she made and others made around her lead up to her decision to take her own life. It covers every situation that a regular teenage kid would typically be put in and how for her, things began to spiral out of control.

This book really makes you realize how what you say or do to someone really does affect them and how sometimes things are just taken too far. There is a message on the importance of treating people with kindness and a book I would highly recommend to young adults or older.

Thirteen Reasons Why has won 13 different awards and is just one of those books that impossible to put down once you start reading it.
