Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

I remember my mom (you can read her review on BooksByViolet) telling me “Autumn! You have to read this! You have to!” and I said no, I have no idea why. When it began to trend I told my mom “I have to read Thirteen Reasons Why!” and she said “Oh, so now you want to read it!” She got it off of Amazon for me. Not even 2 days later I walked into my mom’s room with a smile plastered on my face and said “I finished. And. That. Book. Was. Awesome”

Thirteen Reasons Why was such a great book for so many reasons. It showed the harm that your actions can cause, it revealed a little bit more of what teens are facing today, and more. Each character showed a persona that high schoolers can take on. Then the tapes. The tapes were the truth, the horrible truth that these kids must learn. They all killed Hannah Baker, they all are held responsible for her death. Some of them don’t want to accept it, they want to cover up what they did. The book is just really interesting because you could believe it was a true story, because it could be. This world is filled with haters and jerks, but also with the rebels and the helpers.

Hannah committed suicide because she felt the world no longer needed or wanted her. People made her into something she wasn’t and some of the choices she made didn’t make it any better. This book does not, in ANYWAY, glorify suicide. Thirteen Reasons Why is mainly showing how what you do can affect others.

THE VERDICT on Thirteen Reasons Why

This book is amazing for so many reasons. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. 10 out of 5 stars. READ IT!
