My review for Thirteen Reasons Why:
I give Thirteen Reasons Why 3 stars. I wasn’t too into the book since it seemed so depressing, but I loved the idea of the book. So…The book takes place in modern-day United States and the main character’s name is Clay Jensen. He has just received 13 cassette tapes from a girl named Hannah Baker who he liked. She committed suicide 2 weeks earlier, but made the 13 tapes before she did. She explains in the very beginning that whoever had the tapes last had to give them to the person right after their name was announced. She tells that there are 13 reasons or more specifically people that caused her to end her life. She also says that the last reason is the person who was the last straw in finishing her life. Clay listens to these in one day/night of his life and understands why she ended her life. But every time Hannah says another person’s name to be a reason, Clay wonders if he’s next and worries that he might be the last dreaded reason she finalized her life. Who can cause her to end her life? What reason is Clay? Is he the 13th reason? How will he take this guilt after she explains why he is one of the reasons?
